    will a chain for 9 speed cassette work for older 6 speed front chain rings?

    I'm switching over to 9 speed on my old Nishiki. I'm putting on a SRAM 12-23t cassette. If I change to the narrower chain for the 9 speed cassette will I have to change the front chain rings 53/43t because the teeth would be too wide?
    Thanks

    The chain will work fine. I actually use a 10 speed chain on old 6 speed cranks.
