    Red face cassettes, derailleurs, shifters, cranks

    my current setup is:
    sora shifters...going to upgrade to ultegra ST-6603 triple/10-speed shifters
    stock triple crank
    stock triple FD
    dura-ace 7800 9/10 speed compatible RD
    stock 9-speed cassette...going to upgrade to ultegra CS-6600 10-speed cassette

    question is, can i use my stock crank and FD w/ the planned upgrade? i'm going to upgrade the FD and crank eventually but it's on the back burner for now.

    thanks, folks.

    I don't see any reason why it would not work.

    Is the chain any thinner with the 10 spd setup... might have to change the chain rings but I don't know for sure.

    oh, that makes a lot of sense. my buddy just told me that i'll need a new chain going from a 9 to a 10 speed because the spacing is a bit different.

    as for the FD, is there a difference as far as trim adjustments w/ a 9 and 10 speed?

    10 speed FD's have a narrower cage for the thinner chain.
    That being said I ran 10 speed with a 9 speed FD without any trouble (ultegra double)
    Best to try it & see if you are satisfied with the shifting performance
