Contrary to what pokey said.
I'd suggest sticking with an 8 - speed chain.
If you swapped out the cranks (i.e. 3 front chainrings) and kept the 8 speed cassette, you need to stick w/ an 8 speed chain.
The 9 speed chain is thinner and will not work well with an 8 speed cassette.
An 8 speed chain (wider) will work with 9 speed chainrings. But will NOT work with a 9 speed cassette.
I ran Shimano XT 8 speed with Race Face LP Turbine cranks and 9 speed rings w/o a problem.
BTW what is SRX????? I may be completely off base since I don't know what SRX is, so, if I am sorry Pokey!
