    Can you put 9 speed chainrings on an 8speed crankarm? (for 9 speed use)

    I know the spacing is different between 8 &9 speed cogsets, but is it critical when you put chainrings that are compatible for 8 or 9 speed on an 8 speed crankarm? Does the spacing differ between crank company's cranks? is there a standard measurement that applies to spacing chainrings apart from one another?
    Thanks in advance for sharing & helping.

    yes, it'll work just fine.
    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.
