single or double ring setup? if single ring, no problems. if double, no problems, but you may experience slower shifts from the granny up to the larger ring since the E-13 ring has no shift ramps.

i've been running various unramped rings with my double setups for a long time without difficulty. so long as you don't pull hamfisted shifts, they are fine.

go for it.

oh, it'll be fine. at worst you may have a little slower shifting from you middle ring up to the granny. dont' worry about it; they're nice rings.
