    Highline XT 2x10 retrofit HELP!...

    Has anyone done this?

    I am in the middle of this and seem to be having nothing but problems..My mechanical skills are way above average (as in I've taken apart and put back together whole cars with hand tools).

    My setup is thus:

    Raceface Evolve DH (x3)cranks converted to x2 chain ring (raceface turbine) + full 10-13 bash where 3rd ring would go / Blackspire ISCG x2 tensioner / XT DynaSys shifters / XT 2x10 top mount dualpull FD / XT chain / XT 2x10 M786 rear derailluer / XT x10 rear cassette.

    My issues are these:
    My BIG problem is the rear derailler. First it would not slide over the standard Highline dropout. A call to Turner, they suggested I grind / sand down the removeable dropout with a dremel to facilitate fitting the RD. Done. Now, with the wheel mounted the RD is resting upon the cassette while in the "off" position and it looks as if the chain line will be WAY off. This does not seem normal..... Can post pics if need be..

    Any help? Can anyone walk me through this if you have completed successfully?

    Looks like I was shorted some parts for the rear derailluer in my order. Specifically, the little nubbie that goes between the RD and the RD hanger. Looks like that'll fix my contact and chainline issues.

    Unfortunately, I will now be ordering a new derailluer hanger too
