Am I locked into 9 speed?

Hi all,

I have Ultegra 6500 double cranks. If I get a compatible V1 109.5mm bottom bracket I think I can still run 10 speed shifters w/ a 10 cassette because the chainline is the same from 9 speed to 10 speed. Is this correct? Also, does anyone know if the swing of a 9 speed Ultegra front derailleur is the same as the swing of a 10 speed derailleur - the only diference is the width of the cage?

Thanks - Bikeforums rocks!

It'll work, you'll need 10-speed shifters, cassette, and chain.

Isn't that what you already have with the CS-6500?
