Here is what I want to do.
1. XT crank with Shimano splined BB. It is one of the few that comes in 165mm which is where I want to go.
2.XT Rapid Rise rear derailluer, long cage.
3. Shimano LX 11-34 cassette
4. Chain??????????
5. SRAM trigger shifters, shimano compatible.

Any feedback or suggestions? Really want feedback on the SRAM triggers.

The whole setup looks good to me. I run the SRAM compatible triggers and prefer them to Shimano.

Well got the drivetrain installed with a PC-70 chain. Really like the removeable link.

XT Rapid rise with the SRAM Rocket trigger shifters and LX 11-34 shifts really smoothly in the bike stand!!! True test is in the field in mucky conditions. Will report back after a few miles.
Weird to think of going to a lower gear just by spring action but it sure sems to work very well. I like the thumb thumb operation of the SRAM triggers both front and rear.
