    crank/cassette compatibility

    hi

    i plan on going from xt 770 triple cranks to slx m665 doubles. i have an xt 770 9 speed cassette and an xt 770 front derailleur. will i have any shifting or chain problems for compatibility reasons?

    thanks

    As long as it's all 9 speed you're fine. Although you might find an advantage to switch the FD to the 2 ring FD-M665 front derailleur as the cage sits lower and is closer to the bashring.
