    les cranques

    The bike I have hanging in my furnace room is a '92 miyata nine 14, with full 105 gruppo (indexed dtube r. der. shifter; friction front d. shifter).

    I was thinking of swapping out the 105 cranks for some sugino cranks I have, just for aesthetics. I kind of want to lose the "space 1999" clunky plastic design of the 105s. Should any crankset be okay, or would there be a compatibility problem retrofitting cranks made for an 8 or 9 speed cassette to a 7 speed (besides octalink/square taper--i.e.: spacing and chains).

    I'm not sure that you're gonna find many here who remember '92-vintage 105 (I don't). But assuming that your tooth counts don't change, I don't foresee a problem.

    Since you already have the parts anyway, there's not much risk in trying it, is there?

    Should be fine if the crankset matches up to the bottom bracket and, as DMF said, if there isn't too big a difference in the size of the chainrings. We're assuming you're replacing a double crankset with a double crankset.

    DMF: I like the way you think, sir!

    Al: double-double, yuppers.

    Damn I wish they had In'n'out on the east coast.
