I have a Deore crank/chainrings that came with my (used) Redline, and I want to know if I can throw an Ultegra STI shifter on for the front derailleur.

Obviously, I'm not the most knowledgable about componentry, so understanding and good will is most appreciated.

Don't see why not....Steve_O

I'm running an XT crankset with Ultegra and it works fine. Note that Ultegra can be set up for double or triple chainrings. Assuming that your Deore crank is a triple chainring design then you'll be fine. The Shimano stuff plays well with each other...
