I consider to build a cyclocross bike, I was wondering if I could mix road shifters, double crankset, and front deraileur with a mountain rear derailleur, cassette and chain. WOuld this work properly or does something need to be changed. Thanks Andy

There is no problem with doing this. Many touring bikes use mountain deraileurs to take advantage of the larger mountain cassettes.
