question for all you compatability wizards...
I'm building up an 8sp dura ace downtube shifter bike. um, because I can.
stuff I have:
9sp dura ace RR DR
8sp dura ace downtube shifters
7sp dura ace cranks and front DR
8sp dura ace hubset
So...should I/can I use the 10 speed wheelset with spacers and a longer BB axel to compensate for the chainline or should I build up the 8 speed hubs(money tends to be a limiting factor, but not if it won't work with what I have). I am also a little paranoid about building up the old dura ace hubs only to have the flanges crack as they are of unkown origin and miles/abuse......
