9sp SRAM X-0 and new 10 sp Casettes.
Hi there, quick one -
Does 9sp rear derailleur like sram X-0 works with new 10sp casettes?
Rear derailleur is kinda "dumb" mech leaded by gear shifter, so if I change 9sp shifter to 10sp, rear derailleur shoult still works properly.
Are new SRAM shifters and derailleur still working in 1:1 system?
If yes, this should works, em I right?
Sad to say.... From my understanding they are not compatible. So you will need to replace both shifter and RD

From my understanding it is the pull ratio. 9 speed- 1:1 10 speed - exact actuation(road bike movement)
I am sure someone with a more precise answer will pop up soon and post
Can not mix SRAM 9- and 10-speed derailleurs and shifters.

The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
I can confirm that you cannot mix 9spd and 10spd derailleurs and shifters. I have tried it and it does not work. As mentioned, the cable pull ratio is different.
I have found that this also affects the front der/shifter - if you're running 2x10 FD then you need the 2spd front shifter, or 3spd shifter for the 3x9/3x10 FD's.
I read in another forum,probably drivetrain,that shimano 10 speed shifters will work with 9 speed sram rear deraileurs.I haven't tried it.

you can, at least with Shimano road parts use 10s shifters with a 9s derailleur, brand still has to match though.
