I'm in the market for a new crankset for the spring (k I'm lookn a lil early)
I was looking at a hussefelt 2.2 and perhaps a deore with a bashguard.
The problem I'm running into is they're listed as 10spd cranks or 2x10 (3x10 in the deore case) I'm running 8spd freewheel with xt RD. If I get one of these cranksets will they be useless without converting the rest to 10spd or can I safely run my 8spd setup withoUt failuure/error/not running properly?
I currremtly have a cheapo riveted sr suntour stock crank and would really like the extra clearance and durability a double with bash provides. Changinf bb doesn't matter to me cuz I have square taper ayways so I'd have to change it with the crankset in most cranks I've read about.
Bicycle in question a slightly customized 2011 norco mountaineer (hence the 8spd w xt)
