Will a Shimano XT rapidfire 8-speed shifter be compatible with a typical 8-speed shimano road set up of Ultegra crank, front and rear durailer and hyperglide cassette/chain?
I'm putting a MTB flat bar on my road bike to make a high performance hybrid. Can I get away with not having to purchase XT drivetrain? Thanks!

It will work with any 8-speed Shimano system except 8-speed Dura Ace rear changer.
