    New question here. Mixing SRAM and Shimano question

    I was wondering if I can use SRAM x.9 rapid fire shifters that I upgrade to with the Shimano XT front and rear deraileur I already have. I wasn't sure if the 1:1 and 2:1 ratios would mess something up. Thanks for the help

    First of all, good choice on the X.9 shifters! As for the deraillers, you can use shimano front deraileurs with Sram shifters, but not rear deraileurs. Look around online cause some stores will have a package deal with the shifters and rear deraileur. I got the whole getup on Pricepoint for $110 since they were out of stock. I just checked and its $125 right now. The X.7 set is only $85.
