    Will 9spd SLX cransket work with 10 speed chain ?

    Have 9 speed SLX 3-ring crankset - if change to rest to 10-speed XT (shifter, rear der, cassette and chain - especially looking forward to using Shadow Plus RD) - is that going to work fine ? Ultimately want to move to 2x10, but don't quite want to purchase everything at the same time...

    Yes. Inner width is the exact same, outer plate width gets narrower on 10speed chains to allow for tighter cassette spacing. Might want to look through the sticky at the top of this section for more information about what does and doesnt work between 9 and 10 speed setups.
