this is the 112.5mm BB. the derailleur in question is to be a Daytona double.

Isn't the XTR made for a triple crank? I'd think it would be too wide.

The chainline will most likely be off. I run this combo on my bike, but only to correct a bad chainline. It will work, though, in the sense that the spline pattern will match up. XT and below have a different spline pattern.

The XTR effective spindle length is adjustable via some spacers/shims included with the BB.

Hope this helps.
