    Can I use a 9 speed chainset with a 10 speed transmission (Chain, cassette, and mechs).?

    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).
