    1/8 chain on 3/32 cog?

    i've searched on this, and haven't really come up with any real results. i'm sure this has been asked to death, but i assure you i at least tried to find something on it.

    i know i can't run a 3/32" chain on 1/8" chainrings/cogs, but would there be any significant problems caused by running a 1/8" chain on a 3/32" chainring/cog?

    i'd imagine there'd be room for it to bounce around and get stretched out of shape much more easily, any advice is greatly appreciated, and if someone asked this last week--sorry, i missed the boat.

    It will work.
    When sadness fills my days
    It's time to turn away
    And then tomorrow's dreams
    Become reality to me

    Why do people say you can't use a 1/8" chain on a 3/32" chainring/cog? It will fit.
