I just got my Cross check rolling and I having thoughts about going single. My question is: can I use my
'08 Shimano 105 5600 double crank as a single?
yes. i dont know if that is a compact or not so chainring sizing could come into play. i have a older 105 (bcd 130) on my single speed.

no, it's not compact; it's the 130 size.
