Hey all, just need your opinions on something!
Upon finishing my thesis i'm planning on treating myself to a bianchi matta titanium frame and building it up to replace my entry level road bike i got in 2006.
I've actually got a shimano 105/600 groupset mix from 1993 and was planning on putting that on instead of forking out for new components. However, I would like to replace the old square taper crankset with a modern one with outboard bearings, so I was wondering if this would still be compatible with the rest of the 8-speed groupset? I'm sure the chainrings themselves would ok with an 8-speed chain, but i was wondering whether the spacing between the chainrings themselves would still be ok? ie. would an old 8-speed front derailleur be compatible with a modern 10-speed crankset.
