    Alivio chainring and 9speed chain?

    Do they work together?
    I just realised from checking Shimano website that Alivio is 8speed group. I plan to use the chainring as part of 9 speed setup, with SRAM PC951 chain, which is super-narrow, I believe. Will Alvio chainring work properly with such a chain?
    many thanks

    I took the advice of some fellow MTBrs, for the sake of better shifting on my 8-speed setup, and installed a 9-speed chain on an SRAM PG850 (8-speed) cassette, Alivio rear derailleur, and Shimano Octalink front rings. It works fine and shifts just a tad bit better now. The chain is lighter as well (as far as specs, didn't measure it), and it is supposedly stronger, but that remains to be proven. I already wrecked one 8-speed chain...
