toying with the idea...

anyone used the ultegra 10 speed flatbar shifters? I'm assuming they are similar in function to my XTs... I would run an 11/28 dura-ace cassette as well.

thoughts?

I realize it wouldn't result in any huge gains, but am considering running the same wheelset on a 10 speed cx bike as well and it would simplify things/not add a lot of extra cost. It might be nice to have a few extra options too.

I am unlikely to actually do this btw- but curious if anyone has tried it or have input.

The IRD Elite 11-34 ten speed cassettes come in XT level quality (alloy spider on the top 4 gears, weight is 363 grams). They're not cheap, usually about $140 but solid. They come in 11-30, 12-30, 11-32, 12-32, and 11-34.

The R770 Flat Bar road shifters are XT level...though they do not have the double tap or the instant release of the new XT's
