Crankset & Front Derailleur Compatibility
I've been mulling over the idea of upgrading from 7-sp to 9-sp. I already have an xt derailleur in the rear, so my thoughts are that I would simply need shifters/cable. I already have a cassette and a chain. Then I got to thinking about the crankset. The current crankset says for IG chains only. I believe it is designed to be compatible with 7-sp...so will the 9-sp chain be too narrow? Along the smae lines, will my nexus FD work with the narrower chain?
If I have to buy a new BB, Crankset, FD and shifters it is quite frankly not worth it to me.
