Is Shimano 9000 DA Crankset 10 speed compatible?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Is Shimano 9000 DA Crankset 10 speed compatible?

I'm currently running a Shimano Ultegra 6750 crankset on my Roubaix. All the drivetrain components are 7900 10 speed Dura Ace. I'd like to move up to a DA compact crankset. The most readily available is a 9000 compact. My question is, has anyone used this crankset on a 10 speed set up and did it work OK?

I'm pretty sure you should be able to make it work just fine, but you should probably use an 11s chain.

An 11s chain works great on 10s, in fact better than a 10s chain IME. And they should last a fair bit longer too, thanks to proper pressed-in bushings in the side plates offering more bearing area.

Yes, it will work. I use a Ultegra 10 speed chain and the DA 7900 FD/RD, & STI with a SRAM XG 11-28 cassette. All work excellent!

Standard or compact? How close do you get to small/small before the chain rubs on the big ring?

Yes I've done it with 10 speed rear and 10 sp chain before I upgraded. It will also work with 52 34 Chainrings, just a bit slower to shift
