    I’ve got a 9 speed slx chainset running with a 10 speed kmc chain, on a spearfish as it happens. no problems to report.

    Alright lads…

    So i’ve got a Slasa Spearfish frame. Today i removed the adaptors to fit HTII BB’s and went to fit this crankset

    Now i incorrectly thought i had a BB30 frame.. It transpires i have a PF BB30 frame

    So, i spent hours on phone to different places and one place are getting a Press fit BB30 bottom bracket in for me tomorrow. It’s a ‘rotor’ model and is £45. Eeek !

    However, reading more, i rekon the AKA Crankset is a 9 speed. Currently my chain is a Shimano 10 speed, as is my cassette.

    So, assuming i get the PF-BB30 tomorrow, will my 10 speed chain/cassette work with these cranks?

    There may be more questions tomorrow regarding installation instructions if the answer is yes…

    Unless someone buys my Spearfish frame tonight and i buy a CUBE HT instead LOL.
