    Cranks 3x9 vs 3x10

    I'm in the market for cranks and have had my eyes on the Raceface Next SL carbon setup but they are 3x10 and my bike is a 3x9 setup now. Front derailure is XTR, should I expect to have issues with shifting if I get the 3x10 Raceface or should I stick with a crank that is spec'd for 3x9?

    I have run 3x10 cranks (raceface actually) with a 9sp setup and had zero issues.

    the extra gear gives closer ratios so easier to keep momentum. My front d is a little tricky to set right as it drops the chain sometimes but that's more my not so stellar wrenching skills
