ok, after doing a search...has anyone converted a centuar 10 speed shifter to 9 speed?
after checking branfordbike.com...here is the link:
part number 6 is the 9 speed cog, I'm sure this part is required to convert to 9 speed. I not sure if part number 10 is required. there is one disk for 8/9 speed and a separate disk for 10 speed for part number 10.
someone told a friend that this disk is not required, but it looks like if someone was upgrading from 8 speed to 9 speed it looks like this part is not required. but if I am going from 10 speed to 9 speed, it looks to me that this part is required.
so does anyone have some inside info on this?
btw, I know someone will ask, I don't like 10 speed for many reasons. first I have 2 other bikes that are 9 speed and want interchangability. second, I don't like the fact that 10 speed parts wear out so fast. third, the parts are expensive.
