Building up a new bike over the next couple months and will be doing a mixture of SRAM/Shimano parts for the drivetrain. Did this on my 2011 On-One Inbred 29er frame and love the way everything works but that is a 9spd setup and I want to move to 10spd (2x10) now.

So this will all play "nice" together yes?
- Shimano XT M771 11-36T rear cassette (10spd)
- Shimano SLX 2x10 crank (26/38T)
- SRAM X9 10spd shifters
- SRAM X9 long cage rear derailleur
- SRAM X7 or Shimano SLX Front Deraileur (2x10 compatible... havent decided on this one yet).

Reason I ask is Ribble seems to have the best deals on any of this stuff (no SRAM) even vs. ebay and I have never used them before. Before I purchase I want to make sure that I am not going to have to deal with trying to return the crank and cassette.
