I agree but... that was way too easy.

Surely we can stretch this out to 200 posts by debating some minute aspect.

You didn't say whether Shimano or Campagnolo or SRAM. As for Campagnolo, a 9-speed cassette WILL NOT fit an 8-speed freehub.

As others have mentioned, "Yes" if it's Shimano. But, you might need a narrower chain.
