    Are Type2 derail. 9sp. compatible?

    With the Sram shifters being 1 to 1 actuation on both 9sp & 10sp
    why can't the new Type2 derail. be used with a 9sp Sram shifter?
    Or can they? Thanks in advance.

    Because your assumption is incorrect.

    10spd and 9spd use different actuation ratios and are incompatible.

    If you want Type-2, you have to use a 10spd system.
    It's not where it's made but how it's made.
