8 Speed chainring on a 9 Speed drivechain?
I've done some searches and couldn't come up with an answer. I have an old 8 speed Dura Ace crankset lying around (I don't know, but it looks like the old Uniglide design, all the teeth are the same height), that has practically 0 miles on it. I want to replace my 9 speed Ultegra 42 teeth chainring that's bent beyond repair, with the 42 teeth Dura Ace chainring. Will this work? I know I'll probably lose some shifting smoothness of Superglide, but if it will work reasonably well, I want to use this perfectly good chainring. Will doing this accelerate chain/drivechain wear?
