    9 speed crank compatible with 8 speed chain and r/d

    I am replacing my 8 speed double crankset for a triple and I have seen some good deals on 9 speed cranks sets. What issues will arise if I do this? Will I need to just replace the chain to a 9 speed chain or is my 8 speed chain fine?

    You Should Be Fine As Is

    There shouldn't be any issues with the swap.

    You could run either your current chain or a 9spd chain if your chain is worn.
