    Campagnolo Crank with shimano...everything?

    Hi-
    I just picked up an '07 Scott CR1 Team bike that has all Shimano 105 components. Love the bike, but with the deal I got, I can afford to upgrade the wheelset and some components.

    One upgrade I would like is to put a compact crankset on this bike. This may be a stupid question, but could I put a campagnolo crank on it and leave the rest as Shimano? Is the spacing/teeth similar or the same?
    I found a great deal on a campagnolo centaur carbon compact crank at nashbar and I'm just wondering if this is a possibility.

    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    It's a sin, but mechanically a sound idea.

    I've been using a Mirage 9-speed crank with 8-speed Shimano 600 derailleurs (and Sora shifters). It's flawless. Go for it, and damn the fashion police, I say!

    I had a Veloce 9-speed crank/BB on my old RX100-equipped 8-speed roadie.

    Worked fine.

    You need to change the bottom bracket, too, right? Aren't the BB tapers incompatible?
