The spokes don't care. The maximum pressure a rim can take is inversely related to the tire width, Most manufacturers don't publish this number but 80PSI@1.65" doesn't seem too far off.

42mm is between 1.5" and 2.1" so the width should be fine. I'm not that familiar with 650b so I don't know how well 26" tubes fit.

The "1:1 Activation Ratio" labeling was dropped for 10 speed. 10 speed derailleurs are labeled "Exact Actuation"


In the case of X7 parts the 10 speed parts are labeled "10 speed".
