Dura Ace 10 speed road chain with 10 speed XT RD and Cassette - compatible? noisy.

Dura Ace 10 speed road chain with 10 speed XT RD and Cassette - Should that be compatible?

It's a little rough/noisy in the stand - could this be just because there's no real tension as if I were riding? No bike I've ever had is super-smooth in the stand -- there's always that clunky derailleur sound.

If you are using road shifters a 10-speed MTB rear derailleur will be incompatable with them. You need a 9-speed version of Shimano's MTB rear deraill;eurs to function properly with 10-speed roiad brifters.

Thanks for the replies. I should have been more specific about the setup... I'm not using indexed shifting, just good old friction.

I'm just wondering about the chain/cassette/derailleur.

I can think of two things (there are probably more): the width of the chain and shape of the teeth that may affect the compatibility between Dura Ace and XT. Seems like it should not be an issue, but stranger thing have caused problems.

Should be compatible, but your shifts are going to have to be pretty spot-on for shifting without noise.

Alternately: bikes make noise. Get over it.

Ok, thanks.

Haha... I think I have. I just took it out for another spin and I was probably just being too picky. It was/is noisy in the stand but much better on the road.
