Drivetrain compatibility issues? 8/9 speed
I'm re-doing my old hardtail's drivetrain. The crank, both deraillers, and the chain are all 9 sreed XT. I want to add some 8 speed stuff into the mix, namely: circa '98 8 speed shifter pods, hub, and cluster.
Am I in for any difficulties with this mix of components? I figured the 9 speed chain was necessary as dictated by deraillers' cage size.
This is my first posted thread, I've been mostly a lurker, with a comment posted now and then. Thanks for any replies!
