With a 135 spacing in the rear, should I build a wheel around an XTR hub as opposed to say, Ultegra? Will everything be cool as far as chain line if I'm using an Ultegra crank?

My current thinking is: 8 speed bar end shifters, 39/48(TA) Ultegra 9 speed crank, 9 speed chain, XTR rear hub, XTR 8 speed cassette. What do you think - will it work?
