    Hi !

    Has anyone here tried successfully or might know how to make the Suntour XC Pro MD 8 speed cassette
    work with an all Shimano 8 speed ( shifter / Rear Derailleur ) combo ?

    I tried to make it work on an XT Rear Derailleur / XTR M910 Shift / Brake levers but it would not
    index properly going from small to large cog but it is ok going from large to small.

    BUT here's the strange thing, it works well with my XTR Lever / XTR RAPID RISE rear
    derailleur combo !

    Perhaps I might need to grind down the spacers or something ? I love the quality of the hubs and the
    gear ratios are just perfect so I love to make it work for both of my MTB's

    Thanks for the help !
