I really want to upgrade to the new Type 2 derailleur technology, but do not want to upgrade my entire 9 speed drive train to 10 speed... Currently running SRAM x5 shifters, 9 speed cassette, etc...
So my question is, if I get a 10 speed chain and the SRAM x9 Type 2 derailleur (labeled as 10 speed), will it work with my 9 speed components? I am thinking it would because the shifters determine how much to move the derailleur and with the 1:1 actuation, it should work, but I would like some confirmation before dropping the cash...
Thanks for the help!
