Is it possible to run Shimano front chain rings(xt 36/26)with xx1 for the rest of the drive chain? Currently running xx1 with 30 upfront. Loving it although am concerned I will need smaller gearing for a 7 day stage race.Si I am contemplating going to a double ring in front.Will also try a 28 in front but fear will run out of gears on flat sections.
Is it possible to keep the rear set up 42/10 xx1 and add a double in front (xt ??)
Please help. I'm trying not to to change whole set up for financial reasons while i definitely don't want any issues during the event
