    10 speed crank on 9 speed stuff...

    I got a really good deal on a band new shimano ultegra 10 speed crank and bottom bracket on ebay, 65 bucks. I was'nt realy thinking at the time and didnt stop to consider whether or not it will work with my 9 speed drivetrain. Will it?

    Hey, can we make this a STICKY? Or at least until 10 speed becomes more common, and questions like this (can I use 10 speed stuff with my 9 speed stuff?) don't come up every day?

    This thread isn't worth making a sticky so far. But an FAQ would be useful more generally.

    As cranks are designed for more speeds, their chainrings can get closer together because the chains used are narrower. However, I don't think there's meaningful diff between chainrings designed for 9 and 10 speeds. There is a diff between 8 and 9, but it's slight.

    The crankset on the 10 speed is 30/39/52, so if your old 9 speed is 30/42/52 you will have to change the front derailleur to a 10 speed or change the middle chainring for a 42 to make it work well

    It won't mess up his chain line? Isn't the spindle longer on the Hollowtech II bottom bracket to compensate for the external bearings? I'm new to this and just speculating.

    Chainline should be the same. The new integrated-BB cranksets are designed for the same chainline as more traditional cranksets. In the case of the road triple, chainline at 45mm (for the middle ring).
