I rode 7400 with a 26t, and then a 28t for a while.

Ironically I’m running an M910 on my road bike with 7401 DT shifters and the “opposite” alternate cable routing.

I would so love to get my hands on some M900 kit. So expensive to buy now. The 7401 used I picked up on CL for $20 and then went to work polishing. I do have an M900 crankset I found for sale at $10 without chainrings and very well used. Lots of polishing later and an XTR decal found on eBay and it's not too shabby
