I have a 10sp 29er with a 11x36 and I want to set up a second wheel set in 27+ with a 11x40. I am planning on converting to a XT M8000 RD so that I will have no problems with the 40 tooth, plus my current RD is bent and needs to be replaced. I would like to change between the wheel sets depending on where I am riding, but I am worried about the 36t compatiblity before I move forward.

Thanks for the reply. My main concern was that with a RD designed to handle a 40t plus GC, that putting a 36t under it might cause to much free chain between the upper jockey wheel and the GC.
