    Sram Rival controls/der. question

    I want to upgrade the controls on my cross bike to Rivals and run a MB cass/der, will an X9 9 speed der work with the 10 speed controls? Also, I have an older Shimano 105 front der, will it work?? Thx.

    SRAM road shifters are 100% compatible with SRAM 10 speed MTB derailleurs, but NOT 9 speed. The 105 front derailleur should work fine.

    Would you recommend a Sram cass/chain or will a Shimano work fine? I have found an inexpensive 10 sp Shimano cass/chain combo.Thx for your help!
