    Sram XX Crank chainring spacing???
    So, I want to run my new Epic Comp 29 "2 X 9". I was thinking of getting the new XX crank... However, I just read today in the new MountainBikeAction (came in the mail today) in the "Sram XX Test" that the spacing of the 2 chainrings on the XX crank is wider than normal, to allow use of the small ring / small cog, without the chain rubbing the big ring... makes sense to me, but my 1st thought is that if the spacing is different, then I'd have to assume my XTR front shifter won't be happy with the XX cranks!!! ANYBODY HAVE ANY FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCE WITH THIS?
