    Pauls thumbies

    Here's my question.

    I have a 9 speed XTR rear long cage der. I use Paul's thumbies with it. If I set it to friction shift, will I've able to use that set up for xt 11 speed cassette?

    It appears the xt cassette does not need an xt driver so is the spacing the same as a 10 speed cassette?

    I don't think the derailleur will handle a 40t cassette cog but everything else will work.

    Spacing is narrower on 11 than on 10.

    Yes I know spacing is narrow. That's why friction shifting should. I have an extra long b screw for derailleur. So I'll give it a shot. Why not.

    Yes, friction shift will work fine.
