    Can 10spd Centaur crankset be used with 11spd drivetrain?

    I'm still running a Chorus 9spd drivetrain. Two years ago I needed a new crankset and grabbed a Centaur Carbon 10spd crankset. Now I'm looking to go 11spd and wondered if the 10spd crankset is going to work.

    Are the chainrings for a 10spd any thicker than they are for 11spd rings? Or is it just a spacing btw the chainrings.

    IE, what's different about the cranks from 10spd to 11spd?

    info...

    Although the big ring mounting surface was reduced in thickness by .6mm, it did not result in a .6mm spacing reduction. It's changed little, if any. The change is to the shifting ramps and the teeth are .1mm thinner.

    Many have reported no problems at all, using their 10 speed cranks with 11 speed. I did it for awhile and had no problems.
