    Shimano crank with sram components?

    Hey guys, I was wondering if its possible to run a shimano crank with x9 components and run a 2x10 configuration and remove the bigger cog on the shimano m770 crank. Just because I heard some really bad review on here about the sram X.9 crankset.

    Alright I really want to do 2x10 for this so I was thinking take one ring off and use a sram x9 front der. and shifter. I just wanted to make sure everything would align good and nothing would get stuck.

    I also have a Shimano crank with SRAM components, it's perfectly fine.

    I'm running a SLX 2x9 with the remainder drivetrain being SRAM. Works perfectly.

    Not a problem for these parts to work together . The chain wheels and spacing is compatible between the two companies.
