Shimano 9spd-10spd conversion question



I have Dura-Ace 9 speed on my bike now and would like to convert to D-A
10 speed. What parts do I need to make the conversion? Do I really
need a new crank or front der?
thanks in advance

No. You need 4 things:

1. Shifters
B. Cassette
III. Chain
d. Handlebar tape.

Make sure to get 10-speed compatible handlebar tape.

Sheldon, you're being completely irresponsible.

Now this poor soul is going to end up with the wrong
bar plugs.

Dear Larry,

Bah!

Double-blind testing shows that most riders cannot tell the
difference between different brands of bar plugs until
speeds exceed 35 mph when the proper 10-speed compatible
handlebar tape has been correctly installed.

Unless, of course, the bar plugs have been greased before
installation.

Yeah, and he forgot to mention the special 10-speed chain lube, too.
