    shimano 9-speed chain on 10-speed crank? Does it work?

    I am about to buy a new crankset, which is oficially a 10-speed crankset. As the rest of my bike is 9-speed, and I have just put on a new chain, I was wondering if the 9-speed chain would work on the crankset.

    Does anyone know about the spacing on the 10-speed cranks? Is it too narrow for a 9-speed chain? Should I install spacers?

    You'll be fine installing the new crankset and leaving your drivetrain as is. Once at the link, scroll down to Chainrings/Cranks, then read the section under >New Chainrings, Old Chains.

    If you want to get alleviate any increased chain rub go to a 10 spd chain when your current one needs replacing.
