comment 7-speed MTB cassette on 8/9-speed wheel hub, where does spacer go?
I accepted zenbike's answer as most correct for my actual question. As to the implied question "why did the proper placement result in incorrect engagement", I think lantius was right: LBS missed some basic incompatibility between old cassette, new wheel, and proper spacer. I took the parts back to the LBS, and they ground down the spacer to make it thinner.

I'll get some better, less greasy pics :-) I honestly didn't even think to replace just the rim.

comment Is it harmful to shift RD while climbing standing?
No broken spokes, but the rim cracked (the bright line in the 2nd pic) and bulged out. I only noticed because it started rubbing on the brake pad. Actually I knew it was a little warped for a while, but only in the last month have I been standing from stops and on hills. So could easily be cause and effect.

comment Advantages of higher quality cranksets
Maybe just my confusion. I wasn't sure you really meant better cranks would shift better; I guess that's where I started thinking gears.

comment Advantages of higher quality cranksets
The question asks about crankset, which I take it is combination of crank arms and chain rings. Your answer is (I think) aimed at chain rings only; what are the benefits of upgrading the crank arms in addition?
