    Compatibility

    I could not find an answer anywhere so if you know where one is please link it.
    I just bought a new to me DH Phoenix bike. Since i have snow on the ground I decided to break it down and clean, lube, grease it. So I have not actually ridden it.
    I have a 11-34(9spd) cassette on a 36T front ring with a X9 RD and a X0 shifter both are 10 speed. Do you see any potential problems? I may decide to go to a 11-28 10 spd cassette.

    4. And the bummer, their 10-speed MTB derailleurs are not compatible with their 9-speed MTB drivetrains!

    You can not use a 9-sp cassette with a 10-sp shifter with any system, and mtb 10-sp rear derailleurs are not compatible with 9-sp shifters.

    Get the 10-sp cassette and you are golden.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
