Are campy 8 and 9 speed cranksets the same?timwat

I'm getting a new crankset for my 8 speed chorus and have only seen 9 or 10 speed cranks for sale.

Thanks in advance,
Tim

8 and 9 speed are the same 10 speed is a little bit different(I think that the spacing between chainrings is narrower). I know 9 speed will work and I think 10 speed will also.

Don't go with the 10. The rings have a closer spacing to handle the narrower chain and your wider 8 sp chain won't ride smoothly. The 9 sp crank is compatable.

What about 9-speed cassette with 10 speed chain/rings?Mink

Could the chain be damaged, or fall into the wheel or frame?
