    Bar-end shifters for Dyna-sys?

    I have a generation 1 Salsa Fargo. I am thinking to put on the following crankset and matching derailleur and cassette:

    Shimano XT FC-M785 Crankset > Components > Drivetrain > Cranksets | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    If I do, will the Dura-Ace bar-end shifters work?

    Shimano Dura-Ace SLBS79 Bar End Shifters > Components > Shifters | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    Will 10-speed Dyna-sys be compatible be compatible with 10-speed Dura-Ace?

    No...but a 9 speed Shimano MTB rear derailleur will work as a 10 speed with the Dura-Ace 10 speed shifters.

    Useful to know. Thanks. I would never have guessed that particular combination.

    This is the best solution. However the 7800 and earlier bar end shifters could be run in either friction or indexed mode so you could run the shifter with any RD and cog count you wanted to.
