    Xtr 2011 help

    Hi guys , needing some advice on the right size etc I'm riding a stumpy elite 2011 on 2x10 and my current fd is x7 and shifters are lx (everything's pretty stock atm)

    I'm wanting to switch em out for xtrs ( jumping on the crc sale train) Should i get a m985 FD or a m980 FD for the 2x10 set up ? My seatpost is 30.9 so which size should i go for ? Can i run a XT cassette with a xtr rd ? Any stumpy owners or anyone that knows any would be awesome. Cheers !

    Isn't your front derailleur a direct mount?

    You need an e-plate front deraileur and an obsolete mounting bracket from specialized. You remove the e-plate mount from the deraileur, bolt the bracket from specialized to the bike, and bolt the deraileur to the bracket. Pester you specialized dealer for the mounting bracket.

    Ah ok cool least I have that option call me a nub but if my chainring is 38A - 24A which FD would be suitable ? 39-26 or 42-28? Say if if running a xt cassette at 11-36T

    Doesn't matter what cassette you have. You should use the 39-26 setting on the front deraileur. There is only one deraileur, but it has a small cam you move for the different chain ring capacity.
