    yes it is fine. as long as they are all the same speed.

    It's mixing the shifters and mechs you (usually) can't do.
    It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    Except for the fronts anyway. All in all it could almost be designed to confuse us :lol:

    You would think it would all be simple and obvious like axle sizes and headset sizes and types :lol:
