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

Veloce 9 w/10sp cranckset

I just bought a NOS Veloce 9sp groupset. The seller didn't have a 9sp crankset, so he offered me a Veloce 10sp one (square taper). He said it would work fine. What do you think?

Yup.

Worst case scenario, get some 9-speed chainrings, but it should be just fine.

A friend of mine has a Centaur 10-sp crank on an 8-sp Sora setup and it was apparently just fine.

No need to change your chain rings. You may need the .4mm spacer to get them to shift perfectly.

So the separation between the chainrings is 0.4 mm wider on 9sp? I think that's not much. Probably will shift OK. Still, I'll try to get a 9sp crankset.

now that we've established that it'll be fine, does anyone have the link to the site that lists which shimano/campy shifter/derailler combos will work together. can't seem to find it on google

Should be no problem. One of my bikes I'm actually using an 10 speed Ultra narrow chain on a 9spd crank and it shift fine. You will be fine with the 10 spd crank. To get to full 10 spd all you need is a 10 spd cassette and rebuild your right shifter.
