    LX crankset

    just a quick one.. maybe im not understanding what im reading correctly but.. the lx says its 9 speed "ready".. does that mean its only for 9 speed chains or can you still use a 7 speed chaing on the crank set too?

    No a seven speed chain is too wide. i reccomend you use a 9 speed chain for 9 spped stuff.

    Yes you can. You can use a 7,8, or 9 speed chain with the mega 9 rings on the LX cranks. If you have a 7 speed cassette a 9 speed chain is too narrow for it.
    Some people are like Slinkies . . . not really good for anything, but
    you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.
