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.
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.
