Questions Regarding Drivetrain for Touring Rig
I'm just looking for some comfirmation that what I'm hoping to set up for my touring build will work. If not, I'm looking for corrections/suggestions.
I'm planning on using a 9 speed 12-27 cassette, Ultegra 6500 RD and a compact crankset (50/34). My shifters are 9 speed. This should work with a regular double FD shouldn't it? Also, if I go with a new external bearing crankset advertised as "10 speed compatiable," will it also work with a 9 speed set up?
Thanks for any help!
