Shimano triple question

Chicken Little2011-03-08 01:13:42 +0000 #1
Does anybody out there know if I can run a 9 speed rear with a triple up front? The kit came with a 10 speed rear, but I want the 9. It's all 105's. I am assuming I can if I make sure to use a 9 speed chain. Any thoughts?

My bike has a triple and a 9-speed cassette. I bought it that way. Originally all 105 except for a Tiagra front derailleur, which was replaced by an Ultegra FD when the Tiagra broke.

You can do it - you're just going to have a ghost shift on the rear derailleur.

I think.
