    Hey guys. New to forum here so I'd like to start by saying I appreciate the help :)

    I've been looking at websites and such trying to find new parts for my bike's drivetrain, and had some questions about combinations that I'm looking at.

    I'm considering buying a Shimano Saint RD, with probably an XT cassette. However up front I want to run an XT M770, due to the fact that I want three rings for trails and what not, which I suppose will require an XT FD as well. For shifters I was considering saints, but then realized that the LH saint would only have 2 speeds, so I guess I would need to throw an XT on that side as well? Would a set-up like this actually work, or am I trying something weird here?

    I will admit I'm new at the after-market part of biking, so any help, tips, or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for your time!

    Yeah that's what I was going for, but wasn't sure if there would bbe any compatibility issues in the set up. Sounds clean? Also, thanks for the link
