    Avid,
    If I understand your question correctly, you're in the middle chainring and the smallest, outermost cog of your 8-speed cassette. You hear what you think is a slight misalignment of your...

    I can identify with the sense of this thread, which is "how much is enough to satisfy?".

    Years ago, a friend shared these three criteria:

    - is it true?
    - is it helpful?
    - is it kind?

    If you can satisfy the three conditions, you can go a long way toward making sure that the hearer...

    I have the same story

    This sounds familiar. I have a friend, father of four with not a lot of money, whose bikes I have been building and maintaining for three years now. He's abou 6'1" and 290 lbs of mostly muscle, a...

    ^ this.

    Too much analysis will just introduce error here.

    Is the spindle-to-crank interface the same (square taper)?

    Do you have the candidate new crankset?
