    Shimano Front derailleur & Sram crankset compatibility

    Can I use an Ultegra or a 105 Front Derailleur with a Sram Rival OCT compact double road crankset? I'll be using a 2x10 with a 12-27 Shimano rear cassette & Shimano 10 speed chain.
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    The SRAM crankset with Shimano FD won't be a problem. Even if the spacing isn't exactly the same between the chainrings on a SRAM vs. Shimano crank, it can't be that different to cause any major issues. SRAM claims they use a proprietary cable pull ratio on their front deraillers so it sounds like you'll need to use Shimano shifters with your your Shimano FD though.
