I've been running a Shimano 600 Tri-color crank on my Ciocc. I love the way the 600 looks and performs, but last weekend during a century, the left arm came loose and is now trashed.
I'm now weighing the options for replacement. I don't really want to go with another square taper crank at this point.
Searching around I found the Shimano FC-6600 Ultegra cranks which look good to my eye.
A few questions:
- Can outboard bearings be mounted on a C&V frame?
- Can I mount the chain rings from my 8-speed system on these?
- Can I just run the narrower 10 speed rings?
Would like to hear from anyone running outboard cranks
