10 speed crankset on 8 speed drivetrain.

I am looking to upgrade my crankset on my old Sora 8 speed road bike. I have read in several places that it is OK to use a 9-10 or 11 speed crankset with 8 speed cassette and shifters.

Anyone have...

I own the Showers Pass jacket. I like it, but one major flaw is that the neck is pretty tight, presumably for keeping rain out. This also makes it hard to layer underneath much in the neck area....

Salsa is a QBP Company. Does that mean any bike shop can order them?

Quality Bicycle Products (http://www.qbp.com/page/brands)

Does anyone know if any shop set up with QBP can order Salsa bikes or do you have to be a "dealer?"

Derailler Pulley Tooth Count: Does it matter?

What is this? Disc brake housing fastener?

I have never changed the brake cable housing on my bike. Most of the cable is secured with cable ties, but the fasteners on the seat stay appear to be different? What are they? Are they re-usable?
