Would there be any reason (other than perhaps weight or gearing) to not use a TT crankset/chainrings (pic below) on a non-TT bike? Seems to me that's where road cranks are at least aesthetically going anyways with the like of the FSA MegaExo...

And if it would be kosher to run these, and the chainring [BCD] was compatible with the given cranks arms/spider and drivetrain will a TT chainring have any other compatbility issues (like spacing, shifting)

THANKS

No problem functionally if BCD matches and spacing is OK. Probably makes very little difference aerodynamically anyway compared to the drag of the rider.
