    SRAM XO trigger and XTR derailleurs

    Hi!
    As Shimpanso tries to force their mediocre disk brakes into market by offering only STI units for LX and higher component groups, I wonder if it makes sense to combine XTR front and rear derialleur with SRAM XO trigger shifters.
    Anybody out there whith this combo ?
    Thanx a billion for sharing your experiences !

    one thing to note the XTR rear derialleur won't work with the Sram XO triggers because of the different ratios...IMO the better combo would be XO triggers with X9 rear and XT front...if you have money to burn or want the weight savings then go with the XO rear and XTR front

    DMR (currently running X9 triggers and RD with XT FD)

    X.O and xtr use different gearing ratios as DMR for life has mentioned, so it can't be matched...I use X.O derailur and trigger shifts and XT front

    Right, thats why they make 571, 751 trigger pods which are current generation parts Get your info right first.

    Sram triggers and Shimano rear derailleurs (or vice versa) will not work because they use different cable pull ratio's as the others have mentioned.

    And while we pile on to him

    XT and XTR brakes work great for xc use, sure there was the sticky piston problems years back but with regular servicing they stay smooth. 4 pott XT are still one of my favorite disc brakes, a little heavy but had stellar modulation and power.

    I do not like the pods so I run SRAM Rocket 9's with my XTR rear and front der. (I also popped on Saint brake levers). They work GREAT! Dang pods make me nuts.

    Hecubus,

    Thanks for responding to my inquiry. I just need to know if the XTR FD M960 or the
    old version of Shimano XTR FD will work for the SRAM XO RD-trigger combo? New (expensive) VS old (cost less) Shimano XTR FD, which one?
