Anyone running a Sugino XD600 crankset and a 9 speed drive train?

Just curious if anyone was running a Sugino XD600 crankset and a 9 speed Shimano drive train and has had any compatibility issues? I realize that generally a crank's original 7/8 speed drive train designation can be over emphasized but after being criticized by two local mechanics for even considering it, thought I would ask around. Thanks

I hope it works I have a set-up like that, I was planing on using. It would be my first over 8 speed, so you can't go by what I was thinking of trying.

I do. No issues, and shifts are clean and quick.

I don't personally run that set up but I know a few that do. No problems. I'd run it in a heartbeat if it was an option and I needed it.

You might want to find new mechanics.

Does the stock LHT come with this setup out of the box?

So you shouldn't run into any issues.

Me too. It works great on my LHT. I have the Cyclotouriste 13 cassette from Harris Cyclery on the back. Everything works smoothly, and I like the wide range it affords. I put a 24 tooth granny on the front. I'm glad I did.

Thanks, I didn't think there should be a problem but they got their info from Ben's Cycles in Milwaukee (who sell a bunch of the Sugino cranks) and they were adamant that the teeth were too thick for the narrower chains.
