    Yeah, the 1/32" difference will rip off the teeth and spray them into your legs!

    It's completely fine. There is a slight chance of increased chain deraillment because of the extra 1/32" play, but adequate chain tension and a good chainline will prevent that.

    I just don't want to jack a new dura ace chain ring because I'm impatient.

    but thanks for the wise a$$ remarks

    I hate to be this guy, but a search would have answered your question. There have been a dozen threads about this.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    sorry I hate to be that guy too. the one that doesn't seach.
    did you do a search to see if it was there?
    sometimes I'm just lazy.
    I knew it would work just didn't want to make my new fancy chainring dinged up because of a tiny bit of slack.

    sorry I'm a slacker.'

    It is how I am running at the moment because I have a 1/8" cog and 3/32" chainring. I do notice it is a little noisier though, I suppose it is the chain sliding around on the ring.
