|I currently have a 9 spd set up (105 c/s, cassette, f/r mech etc), is there any reason why I can't put an 8 speed chainset on????? I know that on an mtb a 9spd f/m is narrower than an 8 spd.
Reason being my cranks are 172.5, whch I'd like to change to 170's.

|No problem.Use a 9 speed chain on it.You'll need the correct BB too.|
