    12 speed XTR and Sram Compatiblity

    Hello All. I did a search for details on this, and on google did find some info, but I wanted to see if anyone has real time experience with this. If this is redundant please forgive.

    So since shimano just released the 12 speed XTR, I started to consider replacing some worn out parts. I was looking at XTR and realized they are using this new spline and cassette options may now be limited to just shimano. I also read that the spacing between the new 12 speed stuff and sram eagle is not exactly the same like it used to be. This is a bummer as I am pretty sure I donít want to toss my nice wheelset. I also heard DT Swiss is the only group licensed to make a cassette body.

    SO... Has anyone run the new XTR with an Eagle cassette and did it work ok?

    My desired setup is XTR shifter rear Dr, and sram eagle as a cassette. Thanks

    Thanks Tom. The big question though is, how well does it work. Like its not as good as sram sram or shimano shimano, but works, or it is not even noticeable?
