    SRAM 2x10 crank with Shimano 2x10 system

    I tried looking to see if I can run a SRAM XO crankset with my Shimano drivetrain. I can't find anything saying you can or can't. I'm currently running a 28/40, but would like to go to a 24/38. Any help would be appreciated.

    It works really good, but it's not as smooth as the Shimano cranks. Maybe I need to fiddle with the front derailleur more.

    I'm running an XT drivetrain with an X0 crankset, 22/33/bash, and it works great.
    I'm using a Shimano chain to ensure that rear shifting is optimum, but a SRAM or KMC chain would probably work fine too.

    I'm running a XT drivetrain as well with a Truvativ AKA 2.1 AM (Basically a SRAM X7/X9 crankset with bashguard and 24/36 rings) without issues as well. I'm also using the Shimano HG94 chain without issues. Shifting is very smooth after some adjustement.
