Hello

My Cube bike is fitted with 10 speed Shimano Dyna-sys which all works fine and great, however i have always been a loyal fan of Sram.
So if i fit a 10 speed Sram rear mech, shifters and front mech, will it would ok with the current Shimano Dyna-sys cassette, chain and chainset?

Thanks, Matt

I'm the oposite, I love Shimano so I've just binned off all my SRAM 2x10 speed stuff to fit Shimano.

I've got SRAM X9 shifters and a rear mech that have only been used twice if you're interested?

And... the front mechs are cross-compatible, its just the shifters/rear mechs that don't like each other.

They're grey but they're 2x10 :(

Are SRAM front shifters switchable from 2 to 3 the same as Shimano? I know nothing about SRAM.

£50 for shifters and rear mech was my thoughts. I'm keeping the front mech for now, as it is compatible with the new Shimano shifters.

I bought a new bike a couple of weeks ago, have been out on it twice so far, which is long enough for me to realise that I prefer Shimano. I ordered the Shimano kit last night so the SRAM stuff is still on the bike but once it arrives I'll be stripping off the SRAM and selling it.
