    SLX for Deore 10sp. worth it?

    Just got my hands on an Anthem X 29er and all the necessary swapping of parts is done. Wondering about swapping the Deore crankset for the SLX version, Anthem has press fit bearings by the way. Pros? Cons?

    You could prob get 95% of the way there just swapping the rings out. (I'm not sure what the weight of deore arms is)
