Righto. Couple of questions that might help others too.
I have fitted some Tektro CR720. I’m going to fit Koolstop Dura (road) style pads/holders instead of run the stock Tektro linear pull pad. Good move right?
A bit of a bigger problem is trying to run original/old TA Specialites Pro 5 Vis chainrings - 42/26 - but it doesn’t run nicely. The 42t is pretty much on the cassette midline. It works, but it’s very noisy on the bigger cogs, quiet in the middle, and just a touch of noise on the smallest cog. You can see the teeth pushing the chain sideways to get it into line at these extremities.
My question is, if I replace these with new Pro 5 Vis chainrings, will it work better? The website says no; 8sp max. Velo Orange ones are stated to work with 10sp, but they don’t have the sizes I’m after, and I’m not sure they’ll work with my old cranks; they might only work with the VO cranks. Otherwise, I might have to look at a different crankset.
