    XT M780 cranksets -- double vs. triple chainring spacing

    Couple of questions on chainring spacings:

    1. On the new XT M780/785 cranksets, is the spacing between the 2 rings on the double the same as the spacing between the 1st and 2nd rings on the triple?

    2. Is the spacing between the rings the same on a SRAM triple as a Shimano triple? (Wondering if I can use an X.0 crankset with XT shifters and derailleur.)

    Is the distance from the center of the seat tube to the chain rings the same or just the distance from one ring to the next?
