    Help going 1x10 on a blur LTC

    Hey guys, I originally built my blur LTC 1x9 since I had a good x.9 drivetrain to swap over.

    When that wears out I'm thinking about going 1x10. I'd like to go XTR shifter and RD but it looks like the shadow plus only comes in direct mount which doesn't work with the blur right?

    Any suggestions? Does the XT shadow plus fit the blur?

    The XTR does come in a standard hanger version. I'm running a first gen one now that is being replaced with the new one on warranty. If I were paying for a new derailleur I'd get the XT.

    Either way you'll be happy.

    If you are going 1x10, I would suggest a Zee RD. I'm running one on my Superlight 29 and very happy with it, low-ish cost, snappy shifting and masses of clearance.

    Just be careful with the hanger as they come in 28T max and 36T max versions.

    I have an XT Shadow+ on my BLTa and its great. Can't imagine running without it.

    edit: medium cage with a 2x up front.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Only a DM if you remove that little dog-bone...

    It's hard to see, but no dog-bone on the TB...the hanger points back pretty noticeably too...

    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.
