    Mojo HD and XT 2X10 Crankset/Front derailleur...

    I just ordered a new XT 2x10 crankset with the ring sizes 38/26. I also ordered the XT-M786 front derailleur. Is this combo going to work? And will I be able to use the ibis specific MRP 2x guide with this setup?

    I was thinking about about the XT 2x10 myself in the 38/26 combo...

    According to Ibis you can use it with the following FD:

    SRAM 2x10 34-38 front derailleur. (SRAM X.0 2x10 38/36t High Direct Mount Dual Pull Front Derailleur, SRAM part number 00.7615.177.000, QBP part number FD4754).

    I'm curious to hear how the XT 2X10 38/26 combo has been working out for anyone?

    Yeah I seen that same info from the ibis store...after I already ordered the XT M786 FD. So many hoops to jump through just to use a 2x guide...WTF

    I just noticed that it says direct mount which my HD is not.

    I have been running the 2012 XT 2x10 with the 38/26 combo for over 7 months with no issues. I'm using an XT front derailer and XTR shadow plus rear derailer. The new XTR rear derailer is very impressive. No chain or shifting problems yet. I have hit some big drops which completly bottomed out my rear shock but had no effect on shifting performance. On steep long technical climbs it would be nice to have one more granny gear.

    XT 2x10 38/26
    Ibis MRP 2X Guide
    SRAM X.0 2x10 38/36t High Direct Mount Dual Pull Front Derailleur
    XTR+ RD Mid-Cage
    XTR Trail Pedals

    I ran the XTR+ Long and Mid-Cage, liked the Mid-Cage much better. Dustyman's experience mirrors my experience with this drive train set up. It's waaaayyyyyyyyyy better than any other set up I've tried and it's nice to take big drops and hits without having to worry about your chain. I would prefer a 36/24 for AM, but the trade-off of chain stability to gearing is acceptable.

    I ended up getting a XT 2x10 FD. So far so good. I plan on getting the XT Shadow Plus RD when it comes out.
