Digressing slightly, I thought I would share my recent experience with a Shimano drivetrain build on my 2018 Banshee Spitfire (boost dropouts). I purchased the SLX chain and rear derailleur with an XT shifter. Decided to try and reuse my existing M7000 non-boost 11-speed crankset with 30T SLX chainring to save some money and to achieve a more inboard chainline, which the Banshee would permit. Shimano 12 speed chain would not wrap around the 11-speed chainring. Had a new YBN SLA 12-speed chain (with their version of missing link) to hand, so tried that. Works a treat, cannot tell difference between this setup and the complete SLX setup on my Full Stache. Suspect SRAM chain will also work, not sure about KMC. Really liking the more inboard chainline with this setup.
