sram x0 crank and x7 derailleur compatibility with shimano triggers and chain
I want to convert my stumpjumper fsr expert 29 to full xtr, except the crank and the front derailleur.
The current setup:
crank: Custom SRAM carbon S-2200 (x0) 36/24
front derailleur: SRAM X7, 10-speed, S3 direct mount for DMD, bottom pull
cassette: some sram
rear d: type 2 x0 mid
I want this setup:
xtr rear derailleur, casette and chain
x7 front derailleur and the sram crank remains
Is the xtr trigger is compatible with the x7 front derailleur?
Is the xtr chain is compatibly with the sram crank?
Anybody running 10 speed xtr (triggers, rear dreailleur etc.) with sram x0 crank and sram front derailleur?
It should work fine. If you look around the manufacturers models, they mix and match SRAM cranks and front derailleurs with Shimano like that all the time - also the other way around.
Ski during the off-season
Yes - Well at least I can confirm that the Shimano trigger shifters will work with the X7 FD...

- Shimano XTR RD-M985 GS Shadow Plus Rear Derailleur (exactly what you want)
- SRAM PG-1050 Cassette
- KMC Chain
I wanted SRAM Grip shifts, so I just removed the XTR Rear Der and SLX Trigger shifters and replaced them with X0 grip shifts and X0 Type 2 RD.
Both the X0 Type 2 and XTR Shadow Plus are excellent RD's -- both RD's are long cages, and I did not hear chain slap from either one. Next stop is ebay to recoup some of the cost for the X0 goodies and XTR trail pedals ;-)
