    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

    The chainrings on the 11 speed crankset were moved closer together, so a 10 speed crankset may or may not shift correctly (no personal experience).

    Good point about small change in spacing. To share my experience, I have used 10 and 11 do crank sets interchangeably and I don't notice a difference.

    I have used an 11-speed crank on an otherwise all 10-spd setup, and I've used a 10-spd crank on an 11 spd setup, and neither have any problems.

    I agree with the info above (based on experience -- including EPS on 10s chainrings).

    But, just a note for when your chainrings wear out. There is no difference between the 10s and 11s cranks. It's just the chainrings. You can even put the 2011+ chainrings on pre-2011 carbon cranks by just changing the bolts.
