Anyone know the compatibility of different Shimano components?
I'm still new to this DIY stuff and am unsure which components work with which...
I was thinking of trying my hand at building a new rear wheel using a 9sp FH-2200 hub, but don't know if the following components would work together on a road bike:
Shimano 2300 8sp chainset + HG50 8sp cassette + HG50 6/7/8sp chain
I have no idea if they're Sora, Tiagra, etc, but I was hoping it didn't matter... Alternatively, could anyone recommend a cheap combination (the fewer gears the better)?
Also, would I need a new dérailleur too? I was hoping to use the cheapo Shimano thing I have for my 6sp freewheel...
