Being a relative newbie on bikes mechanics I'm curious if lower end Shimano components like an Acera crank can bu used with XT derailleurs? My wife has a Kona Tanuki that came with Acera cranks and front derailleur and Deore rear.
I recently upgraded my bike to XT and it's AWESOME. I want her to have a good time riding, so getting some decent components would be a step in the right directions - yes, the bike is heavy, yes, the wheels suck, but I'm working on the shifting first.
So does anyone know if I'd need new cranks with XT FD/RD-M781 derailleurs...obviously I'd need a 10 speed cassette as well...and shifters...and chain. Jesus.
