    SRAM 10spd chainrings w/ 11spd group

    Has anyone run SRAM 10spd chainrings with an 11speed group. I'm going full SRAM red 11 and already have a quark Elsa with 10 spd rings. I'm wondering if there's really any difference between the 10 and 11 speed rings. Most other companies rings are 10/11 spd compatible.

    It'll work fine.

    Is there any issue using slightly worn rings with a new chain? Rings probably have 4000 miles on them

    4000 miles is practically new for chain rings.

    Anecdotal evidence posted elsewhere suggests no problem. SRAM has gone from 10-speed rings to 10/11-speed rings recently so it seems that the differences are minimal. Just be sure to use the chain that is right for your cassette.
