10-speed chainrings less durable than 8-speed?
Now, I know that a 10-speed chain will fit on chainrings originally designed for an 8-speed system, etc. And I suspect this means that the actual chainring teeth are no narrower with cranks designed for a 10-speed system, and so there's no reason the chainring teeth should be less durable than chainrings originally designed for 8-speed drivetrains. Can anyone confirm on this?
The reason I'm asking is that I like to run a singe chainring on my commuting bike
and may be building up a fixed-gear soon as well, and I want to know if there's any downside to picking up a chainring designed for a 10-speed system. Thanks.
