8sp brifters with 9sp drivetrain
I'm replacing the shimano sora group (triple) on my bike with 9 speed ultegra (double). I'm going to leave the sora shifters on for now as the ultegra's need new hoods plus I can't be bothered fiddling with the cables.
From what I understand I will need to leave the 8 speed cassette on the bike for the shifters to work with the 9spd components. Is this correct? Also I have a new 9 speed chain that I want to use, will this work with the 8sp cassette?
