This question already has an answer here:
In general, what issues am I likely to run into, if I use a 9 speed derailleur with 10 speed cassette? Is the chain width main problem?
I'm interested in Shimano XT CS-M771 cassette/XT M772 Shadow 9 Speed Rear Mech combo. Will it work?
If it will, what flatcar shifter would work the best (indexed)?
