nine front/eight rear... how
So I want to add a compact crank to my 12 year old road bike. The problem is that the cranks will be 9 speed but my cassette is 8 speed. After doing some research (RIP Sheldon), it seems my solution is to use a 9sp chain to be compatible with the new cranks and the 9sp chain should be compatible with my 8 sp cassette.
What is everyone take on my situation?
