    Sora Shifters (24spd) interchangeable with Deore Sifters and HG-50?

    Hey guys!

    I am building my 04 Hardrock Pro frames with XT wheelsets, 8spd Alivio and Deore drivetrain with Sram Rocket sifters and disc brakes (still looking for a set) and i was wondering, is it possible to slam on a mini TT bar with Sora 24 STI sifters on my bike? I've seen a Louis Garnaeu MV-5 with dropbar (a minivelo with a drop bar and disc brakes!) and C'dale F-series with dropbar, but those are 9spds.
    My question, is Sora 24spd shifters compatible with Deore derailers and HG-50 8spd Mtn. casette?

    well, i know that some guys will laugh at me for tying to put TT bars on MTBs but, i find TTbars more comfortable on long distance runs, and since i will be using this rockhopper for a commuter, i think it will work just fine. However, dropbars or TTbars are not recommanded for serious mountain biking because most of roadbars are fragile, especially to the twisting motion (which the curve of the bar is going to apply on the bar itself)

    The rear derailleur will work fine, however, road front and mountain front derailleurs have different cable pull. Also, if you intend to use disc brakes with road shifters, the only ones I know of that will work are the Avid mechanical disc brakes designed specifically for the road.
