|Why can you not use a campy crankset with dura ace everything else (other than bb). What is the real difference between a Shimano Crankset and a campy one. Or is there any. Because I want that record carbon crankset but dont want full record|

|Until Campy gets their production flaws worked out with the carbon cranks. Also, you can get the FSA cranks, which look really sweet, and are proven performers.

|The spacing is different. So is the bottom bracket spindle. You will not achieve a good chainline unless you play around with spindle length.|

|No brainer - Campy Record chainset & BB OK - or any 103mm taper axle BB as a matter of fact|
|not quite correct...||C-40|

|The size of campy's tapered spindle is slightly smaller than shimano or other BB's built to japanese standards. Campy also has a 102mm spindle length.
A campy crank installed on a shimano BB won't go on the taper as far as intended.

|can a shimano crank + BB be used with an otherwise all-campy 10-speed setup?|

|Shimano moved the little ring closer to the big ring when 9 speed was introduced. I've read several reports that it works ok.|| |
