"Sorry, this is just flat out not true. If you have questions, a quick search of Sheldon Brown's well regarded site will reveal that 10s road Shimano shifters work perfectly with 9s Shimano MTB derailleurs. The only potential issue is with…"

"105 5700 shifters are indexed for 10 speed and will not work properly with a 9 speed RD. Running a double front setup you'll have no chain drop issues using a 105 RD, so I would suggest that instead of the SLX or XT.  If you're riding…"

"I have a Praxis Turn M30 172.5 crank and corresponding BB for a BB30 frame.  This crank is neat bc it fits nearly every style frame/bb on the market by using the proper BB.  It has 36/52 rings mounted but I could mount 36/46 rings if…"

"I am looking for a medium range crankset... So... I saw the FSA Gossamer 50-34 (compact) for $90 and the Shimano 105 50-34 (compact) for $100... Any other options? What about the quality of those cranksets Thanks!"
