    Bruiser 2 retrofit

    hey guys im new to the forum, was looking for a place for this post, I am stripping down this bike and building it with all new components, i already have a shimano saint for the rear caliper, and a shimano xt for the front. i havent decided yet whether or not I can go 10 speed in the rear, but i do know i can go 9. And im doing a 3 speed shimano slx crank. My first question is, does anyone think id have the clearance to go 10 in the rear? my rl hubs will support 9 or 10. my other question is, what would be the best for deraiullers? I was thinking shimano slx shadow for the rear, and i havent decided anything for the front yet. What do you guys think? (p.s. im gonna out it out there now. I dont care if someone thinks the bikes worth it or not. Im already heavy into this, might as well go all the way)

    If there is room for 9 speed, then there is room for 10. Overall size is the same. SLX is good bang for the dollar.
