    8 Speed Chain on an Eagle Chainring?

    Building up a new SS and have an eagle crankset I took off my Santa Cruz Hightower. Any problem running an 8 speed chain with the 12 speed eagle chainring?

    I haven't tried with Eagle, but I had no problems running cheapo 8 and 9 speed SRAM chains on a couple of different 11 speed chainrings (one SRAM, one RaceFace).
