I'm wanting to replace my crankset due to a crank arm working loose on the taper and a bent chainring, I'm also wanting to change to an external bottom bracket at the same time. I am currently running an 8 speed cassette with a Truvativ Fived triple ring crankset (42,32,22t) and have found 8 speed cranksets extremely difficult to come across. I have searched forums to distinguish whether a 9 speed crankset will work with my 8 speed cassette but answers vary. Specifically I am wanting to swap to these e.Thirteen cranks: ... -prod82817
Does anyone know if they would be compatible and if I'd have any problems? Thanks
