    Anyone run a Shimano clutch rear with SRAM 10 shifters in an emergency?

    Figure it will work....like cold raccoon poop. But I figured I would ask before wasting my time. Brand new X9 clutch sh1t the bed 10rides in, no spring tension anymore....

    In an emergency? Pick a gear in the back and just shift the front.

    I don't think you understand....there is no spring tension on the derailleur, so the chain just drags/hangs (b tension) I picked a better option...ditched it all for XT.

    Well, yes, they are replacing it. ...but this just happened yesterday, so my fleet of corporate jets hasn't had time to go to Chicago and back.
    Screw it, XT is just plain...better.
    As long as I was changing the rear derailleur, I changed the entire drivetrain, including brakes.
    I already had all the parts.
    can't wait to ride!
