    help with drivetrain build

    Hello Folks. I'm putting together the drivetrain for my Niner EMD build, using spare parts that I have laying around plus a couple of new pieces, please tell me is you see any problem with my plan.
    XX brakes used
    XO grip shift 9sp used
    XO RD medium cage used
    Sram 9sp cassette used
    Chain ? 9sp or 10sp?
    XO 2sp crank used
    I'll need to purchase XO 2sp shifter, XO 2sp FD to work with my crank? Will the XO 3sp grip shift and X9 3sp work with my XO 2sp crank?
    Any thought?
    Thanks

    -XO RD needs to be a 9 speed model
    -3 speed shifter and FD will work fine, just use the limit screw to lockout the 3rd gear.
    -If your using a 2 x 10 crankset, use a 10 speed chain which will work fine on your 9 speed cassette.
