If you are willing to avoid the small chainring with the bottom half of the cassette, then you can run a regular road derailleur with a triple. You set things up as though it were a double (considering the middle ring and the large ring) and then only use the small chain ring with the 3-4 largest cassette cogs.Eiron said:Thanks Gnarly, I appreciate the info.
Thanks |3iker, that's why I'm asking for user experience: it differs from printed specs. I'm already operating outside the capacity of the XT. Just wondering about the DA now.
