Can I use a 9 speed chainset with a 10 speed transmission (Chain, cassette, and mechs).?
Yes, that is precisely what is specced on my Dawes Audax and works fine.
Thankyou. You've just saved me from having to buy a new chainrings.
Oddly tho, if you use a 9 speed tiagra compact chainset with a 10 speed chain, cassette etc in certain situations the chain will fall between the two chainrings, because whist the large chainring is the same as on a 10 speed chainset the smaller one is'nt.
Now thats bad news.
Looks like it will be a new chainring (if not a chainset).
Separate names with a comma.
