This is initially an Sram front shifter question.

I'm trying to determine the amount of cable pull (click to click) between:

2011 model X.9 front 3x9 shifter
2011 model X.9 front 3x10 shifter
and
2011 X.7 front 3x9 shifter
2011 X.7 front 3x10 shifter

2010 X.7 front 3x9 shifter small to middle ring - 11.9mm (.47 inch)
middle to big ring - 8.4mm (.33 inch)
( Best effort measured on an assembled bike)


Here's the ultimate plan:

X.9 3x9 or 3x10 front shifter 2011
XTR 3x9 front derailleur
XTR m960 3x9 crankset (Blackspire rings)

X.9 10-speed rear shifter 2011
X.9 10-speed rear derailleur
Sram 12-36 cassette or XT Dynasys 11-36 cassette (w/ dynasys xt chain)

Half the parts I have yet to buy! So....

If anyone has any pieces to this puzzle please throw them out here.
I'd appreciate it!

Just use the "9-sp" front shifter and be done with it.

Went to the LBS today...

They're really cool about letting me fool around w/ stuff and I got some basic numbers....

Front shifter cable pull:

2011 X.9 front 3x10 shifter - Small ring to Middle - 12mm, Middle to Big - 8mm
2011 X.7 front 3x10 shifter - Small to Middle - 11-12mm, Middle to Big - 8mm
2011 X.5 front 3x9 shifter - Small to Middle - 11-12mm, Middle to Big - 7-8mm
2010 X.7 front 3x9 shifter - Small to Middle ring - 11.9mm, Middle to Big ring - 8.4mm

These measurements were on the bike and w/ cable connected to front derailleur.

It's looking like I'll be able to get a new 2011 3x10 shifter set and have the two match in color.. (ok.. I'll take the color thing.) or do the "can't go wrong" 9-sp front shifter. graphite color, grey.... no biggie.
