Building an Orange 5 and am currently working on the gears. Need some advice on shifters as it really is boggling my head in. Set up is currently:

SLX double specific front mech
Shimano Saint rear mech
9 speed XT cassette
Shimano XT crank 32/22 with bash

Looking to set this up as a 2 x 9 (obviously lol) so want ideas on what will work and what won't, preferably Shimano to keep with the rest of the gear.

And can you use 3 speed front shifters with a bit of tinkering?
