I am going to be upgrading my GT hybrid commuter bike to use a 10-speed shimano xt cassette, chain, and rear shifter. Before I do so I was wondering if:
1. The 10 speed chain would be compatible with my Truvativ Isoflow single chain-ring/crank-set
2. I change out the crank-set would everything work with a SRAM road bike crank-set. My current single crank-set has 42T and an upgrade to 50T/34T would improve my top speed.
Any an all information is greatly appreciated. I am an amateur cycling and a budding mechanic as well as a computer nerd. I love technical information and can process as much as can be dished out.
