Considering buying a hybrid/flat bar road commuter. Its got 700c tires, the crankset is a triple with road gears, but its got a 9spd rear (11-32) with an XT dérailleur. I am just considering if I am limiting myself by buying this bike... it will be my first commuter and I am not sure how I will want it set up, as I will be figuring this out as I go.
Can I use a 9spd ultegra road cassette with the XT dérailleur?? What cage length would I need if I switch to 12-26 rear?
Also, if its not possible to use the same XT derailleur, is an ultegra or 105 rear derailleur compatible with XT shifters??
