I'm going to put some gears on my Cotic RoadRat and have come to a bit of a stumbling block with the front gearing. I've picked out a 9-speed cassette and rear mech (both sora) and intend to use deore mtb shifters (on Mary Bars).
-Will a front deore shifter (ie three speed) work ok with a road double chainset?
-Will a rear road mech and cassette work ok with a rear deore shifter?
All suggestions greatfully received!
