    XX crank in otherwise 9 speed setup?

    I'm looking for a 2 ring BB30 crankset to be used in a 9 speed setup. Can I run an XX crank? Will there be any compatability challenges with a 10 speed crank with 9 speed cassette? Which chain should I run....10sp or 9?

    Thanks

    Lots of guys run 10 speed chains on their completely 9 speed drivetrain.
    Cannondale's Hollowgram crankset might be worth a look too.

    No Issues

    You can run a 10 spd crank with a 7 spd drivetrain if you want.

    Stick with the 9spd chain.
