    Hi there,

    on Shimano's homepage it is stated that the new crank only works with 10speed cassettes?

    Is this true or just marketing - anyone running the new saint with a 9speed cassette and chain?

    Thanx

    I haven't done a Saint specifically but there's no reason it shouldn't work 9 speed. I've set up a ton of other Shimano 10s cranks on 9s systems no problems.

    i imagine with the right chainring, there couldn't be a problem.

    the real shame is a 10 speed saint derailleur....
