10 speed chain will work on a 9 speed cassette

do you know if a 10 speed chain will work on a 9 speed cassette
Yes they will. But 9 on a 10 is not a good idea.
Just to confirm it is a 10 speed chain on a 9 speed cassette not the other way around
same applies to a 9spd chain on a 8spd cassette. Works fine.
I bought a bike recently from ******* and the donkey who boxed it up put a 9spd rear wheel on a 8speed drivetrain. Anyway, I tried it out on the workstand just to see, and it actually shifted okay. Bit noisy but it worked. Anyway, it's all 9spd now.
Facts are meaningless, you can use facts to prove anything that's remotely true!
