    2010 RIP Niner build

    I'm building my Rip up with new XT Dyna-sys cranks. I was wondering if I need to use any spacers on the BB?

    Stock width is 73mm on the frames bottom bracket, so no, unlikely spacers are needed.

    What muzzanic said. One 2.5mm spacer on the drive side -- unless the directions that come with the crank indicate otherwise.

    My RIP frame came with a XT front derailleur model number M-771. The XT Dyn-Sys group I ordered came with what looks like the same FD except the model number is M-771-10. Does anyone know what the difference is or if there is even a difference?

    Yes they look the same but the cable throw is not the same the new 10 sp stuff only works with the new 10 sp stuff.

    I put the XT 10 speed on 1 of my Rip's & it worked well but have to say the Sram X9, 2x10
    suits my riding better,

    I also just took the 10speed XT off my wifes bike & fitted 2 x 10 on her bike but that was more to keep her out of the big ring & get her spinning more,not because she didn't like it.

    I think the 10 sp XT is a big step up form the old 9 speed & I have 3 friends with it to & they like it alot to.

    Did you need the Spacers?

    Also building the same bike.... But
    I may go with 9spd crank front d and front shifter... with a 10spd rear d cassette rear shifter and chain.
    Will this work?

    1 on the drive side.

    Yes it will work, but If you go with the XT 10 speed cranks it gives you a 42 big ring & that is much better on the Rip9 than the 44
