    compatibility between 9 and 10 spd

    Sorry if this has been covered before but............Are the 2x 10spd SRAM cranks compatible with 9 spd chains? I'm trying to run a 2x system with gearing similar to SRAMs and have run into some snags. So I was hoping that I could run XO cranks. Thanks.

    I can't say for sure if a 9 speed chain will work properly with a 10 speed crank. If you are running 9 speed and want to use a new 2x10 crank just switch to a 10 speed chain too. I have been running 10 speed chains on my 9 speed group now for quite some time and it shifts great even with a 9 speed crank. Certainly more quite than a 9 speed chain...
