I just ordered a set of XTR 10 speed shifters, Rear Derailleur, Chain and an XT 11-36T Cassette- I will run this with my current XTR 970 cranks and Front Der and should have no issue from what the sticky on shimano 10 speed in the drivetrain forum indicates...
A bit of a catch the bike is a pivot 429 with a direct mount XTR Front Der, I noticed at least one post that had some initial issues with the 9 spd front der/cranks and needed to move the FD up a bit to get the front shifting to work at all- I hope I can make it work without it as it is a bit tough on a direct mount FD!!!
Long story short-
Has anyone else who actually went the 10 speed route with just the rear cass, rear der, chain and shifters matched with 9spd FD and Crankset had any luck on a pivot direct mount?
