    Will Dyna Sys shifters work on non-Dyna Sys derailleurs?

    I need new shifters for my bike. It has an XT front derailleur and an XT mega 9 rear derailleur. I found a good deal on a pair of M770 Dyna Sys 9 speed shifters. Will they work on my derailleurs, or do the derailleurs need to be Dyna Sys as well?

    Short answer: no. Front will work

    In your post it says "M770 Dyna Sys 9 speed shifters". Dynasys are not 9 speed, maybe the listing on the website was wrong?

    Interesting. I ended up having Art's price match Chain Reaction and ordered some that didn't say dyna sys, so I should be good, and Art's has free return shipping. Tree Fort had an open box buy for $84 that said "dyna-sys 9 speed." Maybe it is just a typo.
