    From 2x10 (Sram) to 3x10 (Shimano)

    Pls Help!

    Currently running on Sram 2x10.

    1) Can I change to Shimano FD (either SLX or XT) 3x10 with chainring 42/32/24T?

    2) by using DMD adapter, can solve this problem?

    From 2x10 (Sram) to 3x10 (Shimano)

    Given that my wife's 2010 stumpjumper came set up with a 3x9 slx derailleur, absolutely. Just make sure you use the correct mount. You need to match you front derailleur to the shifter so you will also need a 3x10 shifter. My question is why are you going from 2x10 to 3x10? If it is a gearing issue, it most likely can be solved by a chainring swap which will be less expensive and maintain the better shifting that a double front provides.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I just couldn't let others leaving me behind.

    In our place we normally facing about 30% on road before start an off road. Most of my friends running 3x9 & 3x10 hard tail, it's an advantage for them on flat road.

    However, problem solved now by adding DMD adapter and minor modification.
