    compatibility between SRAM X9 and Shimano XT?

    Hi Forum,

    I have a plan to change the RD from Shimano XT to SRAM X9...

    is there any information whether RD Sram X9 Grey Type 2 Medium 10 speed is compatible with shifter and cassette sprocket shimano XT 10sp (11-36)?


    thanks,
    prana

    SRAM 10-speed shifters are not compatible with Shimano 10-speed rear derailleurs. The SRAM 10 speed shifters have a different cable pull ratio. Note: SRAM 9-speed shifters are compatible with Shimano 10-speed rear derailleurs. I run a SRAM XO 9-speed shifter with a a Shimano XTR M986 10-speed shadow plus rear derailleur.

    thanks for the response ..

    but actually my question is whether SRAM X9 10 speed rear derailleurs is compatible with Shimano XT 10 speed shifter? (now I'm using XT shifter with XT RD and would like to replace the RD with SRAM X9 10sp) or I can use your previous answer to this problem?

    thanks a lot!
