I am referring specifically to the Shimano FC-M540-K crankset and the BB-ES51-K bottom bracket. I want to use the crankset on a bike without a chaincase, and I wanted to know if there is anything wrong or imperfect about doing that.
I'd appreciate anything you can tell me, but here are some specific questions:
1.) What is different between this and a plain crankset and BB?
2.) Will the FC-M540-K crankset work with a plain BB-ES51 (regular, non-K)?
3.) WIll it look ugly if not hidden inside a chaincase?
