    I have 8 speed friction on my commuter and it works just fine with 7 speed chainrings. I wouldn't much worry about it.

    Sadly, I'm already all in with a full Shimano 6700 crankset. I was hoping to...

    The only not sentimental reason is I already bought the appropriate Phil Wood square taper bottom bracket for the White Industries crankset, which was a pretty penny. The other reasons include...

    Based on this post at Black Mountain Cycles (Black Mountain Cycles: Bells and whistles...), suggests that the White Industries VBC crankset does not play nice with 10 speed. I was planning on putting...

    First of all, that Monk is awesome.

    On your mountain bike point, you may be correct - I rode my old Surly Cross Check on a local trail and it went "okay". I didn't have enough standover, but I...
