Righto, i run a 10 spd shimano mech with 9 spd shifters on my cross bike fine but can i do the same on my mountainbike with Sram components?

The lan is to run a new type 2 X9 10spd rear mech with older 9spd X0 gripshifts, can this be done easily?

thanks i advance

JB

    Nope. The pull ratio not the same. They changed it for MTB 10spd.

    I'm told the road 10 speed mechs will work with the SRAM 9 speed shifters though......need to check the max teeth sizing/ranges though!

    The ratio is similar but not the same the pull is now equal as opposed to being varied. Yes it can "work" but is not allingned correctly over some cogs.

    SRAM has/had the info on their webby.
