    AIR 9 Front derailleur standard/cage length.

    Im little confused which front derailleur Im supposed to use if Im going for a shimano 2x10 xt set for example.

    If I configure AIR 9 here on niner website its configured with: SHIMANO XT M786 10SP 34.9, DOWN SWING, DUAL PULL
    Configurator

    But if I look into Tech info about AIR 9 it says: High mount, top pull
    AIR 9

    And also, do I need Medium Cage for rear derailleur or can I use long/small cage ?

    And I need some sort of bb30 to hollowtech ii kit I guess.

    I have size L on my Air 9.

    Regards

    You need a High Mount, Top Pull. The down swing duel pull is a high mount. The dual pull just means the cable can come from the bottom or the top. You can use a duel pull or a top pull, just not a bottom pull.

    For a 2 x 10 I would go with a medium cage. You can use a long cage if you would like but the medium cage is supposed to give you a little snappier shifting. You won't be able to use a short cage with a 2 x 10.
