I almost have all the parts I need to complete my cross bike, except for the shifters. My current set up is a triple in the front with 9speed in the rear. When I buy the shifters, do have have to be 9speed compatible along with triple in the front, or can they be adjusted to work with my current setup?

the spacing is different between the 8 and 9 spd cassetts, so the shifters are not interchangeable.
