    Keep the XTR crank (it's 9 speed, but will run a 10 speed chain fine) till the chainrings are worn, then replace. The XTR won't look too out of place, unless you intend to run 1x10 or 2X10, then...

    The bike doesn't care as long as it fits the dropouts, in your case 100mm OLD, and that you have a braking surface on the rim. Nothing wrong with running rim brake rims with a disc hub, ever noticed...
