Is is possible to run sram road cranks and sram Front & Rear road der's on the air 9 carbon? I want to build a geared cyclocross bike from from my Air9 Carbon frame and fork. I want go away from a flat bar and go to a drop bar. Here is the bike I intend to convert.

You could run the f/r derailleurs, but road cranks are designed around a 68mm bb shell, and that frame uses a 73mm. You could use a crankset like a hollowgram or lightning/specialized and put a road spider on it, but your chainline will be off.
