Hello,
I came across this crankset, which I'll be installing on my Yeti.


It's a factory Truvativ XO from your Enduro Expert. It's not the traditional XO 2x10 crankset that Sram offers, but rather the 3x10 and uses the 24/36/bash config.
I need to know a few things-
a) What X9 shifter is used on the Expert for the front? Is it a 2 or 3 speed?
b) What X7 front derailleur is used on the Expert? Is it a 2 or 3 speed?

Specialized.com doesn't give me any specific info, other than X9 this and X7 that.

Thanks so much!

The 2011 2x10 bikes use 2-ring front derailleurs and shifters, but you can just as easily use a triple shifting setup if you crank the high limit on the derailleur all the way down. Not a big deal.

You're half-right. The above crank is not a dedicated 2 ring crankset, it's a 3 ring. A 2-speed shifter and a 3-speed shifter pull different lengths of cable with each upshift; which in turn matches the chainring gap specific to the crank.
Given that Specialized used this crankset on the Enduro, I just need to know specifically which front shifter and front derailleur is used on their build.

Thanks again for the reply.
