Is there any downside to mixing chainrings with a friction shift 7 speed?
I want to try a larger inner chainring, a 42T or 44T. The outer is a pre SIS Shimano 600 52T 3/32.
For the inner is there any real downside with using a Shimano SuperGlide 3/32. or a Sugino Standard, no ramps or pins 8-speed, Chain Compatibility:9-Speed, 3/32, with my existing large ring? (they are both pretty affordable)
Or would there be any advantage to get both rings Shimano SuperGlide?
It's friction shift with a Suntour Winner 13-23, 7 speed freewheel. Thanks for any input.
