Ok so I have the standard grip shift max shifters on my spec. hardrock. I'm going to get an XT front derailleur, XT rear derailleur, and Race Face Deus crank. Will this all work with the current sram shifters? Not an x. anything shifter, just regular that currently operate alivio/deore.
Also, since it is currently 7 speed will the xt rear work with 7 speed? thanks.
