I'm looking at a Race Face Ride Oe crankset for my Trek 3500 disc. Yes, I have Shimano Tourney, the bottom line Shimano derailleurs, 7 speed only. But, the description for the crankset says 9/10 speed only. 7, 8, and 9 speed have 3/32 chains. Am I able to use it? I might upgrade my rear derailleur soon anyways. The product can be shown on any internet bike shop or Google Images. Thank you!

Yes it should work. Might take some fiddling - you might have to move to a 9 speed chain. If all else fails, you can buy shims that go between the rings and spider.

Weird, I was thinking about putting 9 speed spacers in my cassette and putting some more spacers in the hub. And yes, the 9 speed chain might work...
