    Default Sram 10 speed derailleur with 11 speed shifter?

    I can't seem to find any definitive info on this - will I be able to use my type 2 X0 derailleur with the new XX or X01 11 speed shifters?

    Alternatively, does anyone know if anyone is making a 10 speed cassette that runs 10 - 42t?

    Really liking 1 x 10, but am looking at a poor man's hack to go 1 x 11 or get some slightly more versatile ratios happening.

    Cheers

    40T 10 speed adaptor

    would have thought no to your previous question, but not 100% certain

    thought the derailluer travel path is different on XX1

    Default 30T with a 38t on the rear ...

    30t front and 11-38 rear ... that should get you up a vertical face.

    If you can't get up in that you probably faster walking
    Wont even bother with crash cout its already over 999

    None of the major players make a 10-sp. cassette with a sprocket bigger than 36T at present. If you're hoping to go bigger, you'll have to source a specialist manufacturer, and that ain't going to be cheap. Also the fact that to run the 10T top sprocket, you need a special hub (X-Drive), 'cos it's too small to fit on a conventional cassette body.
    Just ride the bloody thing and enjoy yourself!

    Gripper on here built his own 10spd 11-41T (i think cassette) and has documented it.
    cheaper than the general lee conversion (which puts it up into the may-as-well-buy-xx1 bracket)

    there is no "cheap" way to go about it though.

    sorry to hijack, but in a similar situation....
    currently have 2x10 setup in SRAM XX
    XX derailleur is not clutched
    Can i run an XX1 derailleur on a 10 speed shifter or do i need to go XO 10 speed to run a clutched derailleur on current cassette, etc.

    wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy a clutched 10 spd XO rear derailleur? Why spend the extra on XX1

    The problem I would have with that is spinning out on the DH sections, not getting up the hills. The reason I want 10 - 42 on the back is to be able to ride up pinchy climbs and be able to pedal on way back down, like I currently can with 32t on the front. Basically 32 is as small as I want to go up front and after extensive testing I've found that paired with 11t on the back I'm able to pedal on all the DH sections where I need to pedal. 10 on the back would be even better though, especially in a race situation.

    Yes, looking at the pull ratio of XX1, it does look different than X0, so the shifter is not gonna work.

    Assuming I can use my Works Components wide/narrow ring on the front, looks like I'll be up for a shifter, derailleur, chain, cassette and Hope freehub body to make the switch. Not having ridden a 42t on the back, is it really worth all the trouble??

    you can use XX1 rear end with a standard ring up front.

    if you dont want to go any lower than what the 32 front 36 rear gave you, you can jump up to a 36T front ring, which means 36 front and 42 rear is just slightly under the old combo, but you also now have 36 front and 10 rear to blow down hill.
    or go 34T chainring and gain a ratio in each direction.
