I'd calculate the ratios you really use , and question
whether you have such abundant funds for the huge inflationary
uptick in chains and cassettes that will wear out and cost at $100+ and $200+ a pop..
But, as chains still are 1/2" pitch ..but, the rollers get thinner,
and so the chain ring teeth get thinner to match..
so the 10 speed width will let the 11 speed chain slide over the teeth,
if tight , wear the chainring tooth faces and stretch the inner plates on the pins a bit
