8 speed chain on a 9speed MTB ring?
looking to replace my smashed up cranks and while I'm at it I thought that I'd bump up a ring size to get more top end since I have a 34t big back sprocket. So I'm looking at a 48t (largest) crank that says that it's compatible with NINE speeds but the bike is EIGHT speeds. I know this sounds like a dumb question but I have been amazed at the tiny things that make a HUGE difference (and the HUGE things that make NO difference) when tinkering with bikes. So, will this ring work?
