|Are Shimano HG and IG parts supposed to be used together?
I want to move my Shimano XT parts from my mountain frame to a cross frame because it will better suit my needs. All parts were purchased in October 1996 so they "may" be mixed between years. I have never needed to replace anything so I just want to make sure that it was initially set up correctly so that I do not have problems when I move it to a new bike. I know about BB and derailleur issues but the HG and IG thing does not make sense.
Crank: Shimano XT M-737 (5-arm spider 22/32/42)
The Crank has a sticker "IG Chain Only"
Rear hub: Shimano HB-737
Rear cassette: Shimano 11-28
The cassette has in "HG Hyperglide C"
Chain: Sachs MTB (M55 or M50)

|info there on ig and hg
", since the sprockets are thicker, Shimano says you shouldn't use H.G. chains on I.G. cassettes. Sachs chains are compatible with both types"
