Just bought a set of Truvativ stylo teams from Ebay. If I choose to stick with 8 speed, will these cranks work? Or should I plan on switching out to 9 speed?
Thx!

I can't imagine any change they'd have made in the last couple years that'd make them incompatible with 8-speed. That's what I use with my Stylo Teams. The 9-speed compatible chainrings are thinner than those meant exclusively for 8-speed, but they work fine for either.

I have 2 sets of these cranks (1 on my bike , 1 on my brothers) and we both use an 8 speed drivetrain both work fine. Actually I still prefer 8 speed over 9... I don't see any advantage 9 speed has to offer.
