My trusty old Vitus 992 (now a wninter/commuter bike ) is still kitted out with C Record 8sp, but as old age overtakes me I've rather taken a shine to these new fangled compact chainset thingees, so thought I'd fit one to my Vitus. Saw a bargain clearance offer on Chainreaction a while back, Truvativ Rouleur compact, integrated BB design, 50/34, 170mm cranks - £50.00 including the bearing cups. So I bought one. Stripped the bike down this weekend and gave it a bit of love and attention, and fitted new chainset. Shifting is fine on cassette (13/26) and chainset. However there is a problem with the chain, which when on the inner chain ring, rubs/catches the outer ring. Makes bloody awful noise. It does it even when on the middleish sprockets, so indicates to me that the chain is too wide for the design of the chainset. So I need to sort this out. Various possibilities: Spacing washer between chainrings Fit a 9sp or 10sp chain Upgrade to 9 or 10sp throughout Couple of questions for the experts out there. Washers. I could machine up some washers, just a bit off a faff. Anyone got any or know where I could get some. Narrower chain is the easy fix, current chain is a bit 'tired' anyway. But can I run a 9 or 10 sp chain in a 8sp rear mech with 8sp jockey wheels in place? Or should I fit the narrower 9 or 10 sp jockey wheels? And will a narrower chain fit on 8sp sprockets? I'm guessing inner width of chain is common to all chains, only the outer width varies, and sprocket thickness is very similar for 8/9/10 sp. Correct? Upgrade. Anyone got some Campag 9/10 sp kit they want to sell? F & r mechs plus ergos. Can't fit 9sp to my existing wheels, but I've already got some Mavic Ksyrium Equipes with Campag freehub waiting in the wings. Thanks.
