If the cassette is an 8 speed then you don't need a new chain (it migh
be advisable to get one if it is a new cassette). As Pete said 7 and
spped are perfetcly compatible, what you'll need to do it adjust th
cable tensioner on the read deraileur. A half turn or so should do i
for you.

As for the chainset, if it is octalink, you'll definitley need a ne
BB, if not, then personally I'd try it with the old BB, and then i
it's too close/far away, I'd get a BB accordingly, it should be fairl
easy to tell what size you actually need if you know the size of th
old BB. 113mm bb's are typical, but there are no standards :-)
