    X9 9 speed rear der 2015- 8spd compat?

    I just bought a spare rear der and intended to run it 8 spd but the packaging does not clearly indicate it is compatible with 7 and 8 speed drive trains like my other X9's. Did the design change? Am I just an old dude with older equipment? I assume I can run 8 speed cassette with a nine speed chain... If anyone knows if the design changed or if the packaging is just reflecting the move towards 10 and 11 speed stuff
    I guarantee I will never, ever be accused of bringing sexy back...
