Anyone using a 10 Speed D/A Crankset with 11 Speed?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Anyone using a 10 Speed D/A Crankset with 11 Speed?

I'm in the middle of throwing together a 2003 Litespeed Ultimate, and want to use a Dura Ace 11 group, but the Crankset is one of the ugliest available IMO. Has anyone used anything else with this setup successfully? I like the look of the 7800 much better, but I'm guessing that's likely not compatible with 11 speed. Thanks!

It's probably alright.

But that 9000 crank grew on me quite a bit. Looks miles better than every other four arm job.

It will work fine(I've done it). When I first went 11 speed, I did it on a tight budget, and skipped the 7800 to 9000 crankset upgrade.

Actually, the anodising fade on 9100 is pretty impressive. Not such a fan of the asymmetric fade on the hubs, though... But at least I guess it leaves the door open for big lulz at anyone who puts their rim brake front in backwards.

On the flip side, do the newer 11 speed cranks work with a 10 speed setup? I've read mixed things about it and it looks like there are a LOT of inexpensive 11 speed compact cranks on the market since it appears that's what everyone is running these days.

You probably want to run an 11s chain with an 11s crank. You might run into trouble getting the trim position on the fd dialed in.
