    Shimano's 10s Dyna-Sys derailleurs have different cable-pull requirements than the road 10s derailleurs. You can pair a road 10s shifter with a 9s derailleur, but you can't mate 10s road shifters...

    A fork-mounted cable stop will usually stop squealing/noise.

    I have one that's close to 40 years old. It doesn't see much use, but the more modern version in my tool chest keeps my bikes rolling along.

    Since the front shifter operates in friction mode, it's compatible with virtually any front derailleur.

    Shimano's 8s rear shifters will operate road or mtb derailleurs (same with 9s, too). The...

    You can use an in-line cable adjuster with the Shadow-style derailleurs. Works fine. I reviewed a Volagi Viaje that was set up similarly to what you describe. You can read the article here.

    My understanding is that the shadow-style XT units work best. The plain Deore may be fine, but I haven't personally tried it.

    Shimano's road and mtb 10s derailleurs are not interchangeable (they have different cable-pull requirements). You can, however, use a late-model 9s XT rear derailleur with your 10s road shifters and...

    I've never had a problem with that same combo. The loose fit may just be due to the fact that the KMC links can be re-used.

    If your crank has a 110mm BCD, 34t is the smallest commonly-available ring that will fit (T.A. makes a 33t ring).

    Do you have a 9- or 10-speed drivetrain?

    I weigh 199, and only run 25mm tires on 25mm rims (tubeless). I much prefer 28mm tires on 25mm rims (again, tubeless).

    Frame geometry won't tell you everything. You'll need to check tire clearance at the fork crown, BB/chainstay junction, and seatstays. If the manu specs wide tires (eg, 40mm) as OE, there's usually...

    An 85mm v-brake should be fine with those levers. A Travel Agent wouldn't be necessary unless you're running very tall brake arms (ex: 100mm or longer).
