One beautiful aspect of our industry is that creative minds from all over the world are continually
innovating. The greater bulk is of course **** like in anything else but that's were improvement is
winnowed from. Those who pine for a "simpler age" forget that these problems have always been with
us. The things we deal with change but the new parts don't work together any better than the old
So, the short answer is "nowhere".
The internet has given us resources from, for example Mr Brown's yeomanlike and exhaustive pages
through manufacturer's (uneven quality) websites to specialty sites like John Dacey's track
reference. And this group is generally the best resource you have for those sorts of questions when
your own searches are fruitless.
(your "various componentry compatability issues" could span anythng from STi shifters with Shimano
MTB front changers to chain adjusters for 14mm freestyle hub axles - an impossibly broad mission!)
