    2011 Giant Anthem X29 Front Derailleur

    Need assistance on the specifications on the front derailleur on my Anthem. I just got back into riding and don't remember much of the specs. I went to the Giant website and it just confirmed what I already knew that it was a Shimano SLX... I wanted to upgrade to a XT or XTR and want to make sure I select the correct one. Bike is still factory 3x10 set up on the factory SLX Crank.

    Why bother upgrading the derailleur? Ditch it. You've got 10 gears in the back. Put a 28 tooth single ring up front and simplify your life. And your bike.

    Not sure which swing that bike uses, prolly top; but the real question is what do you expect to gain with that change? If you're looking for a different feel/shift upgrade the shifter instead. You'll notice that.
    oops I wasn't clipped in
