    XT785 double chinrings on 770 triple cranks

    Through various bike and component exchanges I have SRAM X.0 2x10 shifters on my bike with a XT 770 triple crank. I would like to replace my chainrings to get a better double ratio, and I am thinking the 28/40 combo from the newer 785 crankset would be great. Will this work on the inner/middle positions of my crankset? BCDs are the same and I think I have enough clearance but it will be tight. Do the newer cranks have a wider chainring position for the smaller positions to allow more clearance? I don't really want to shell out $100 for rings that don't work.
    thanks

    As long as the BCD is the same then they should work just fine. I have XT 771 cranks with 785 rings and they work great
