comment Can a 10-speed chain be used with a 9-speed cassette?
I've never tried this. I have tried a 10-speed chain on an 8-speed sprocket, and it was pretty fucky. The width of a 9-speed chain is 6.6 - 6.8mm, and a 10-speed is 6.2. It's not a small difference. I suspect that your shifting will be wonky. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_chain#Width

comment What rear derailleur do I need?
What year is the bike? If memory serves the milk race ran from time immemorial until sometime around 2004, so you're looking at a wide range of different technologies to be compatible with.
