I would first go with a 105 GS RD, or even a SGS 9-speed mountain RD to get it to 34 or 36 cog.

For my 8,9 speed bikes instead of the 74/130mm crankset I would simply go with a 74/110mm crankset, but on 10 speed this may be problematic. Shedon Brown says older cranksets will work with 10-speed, but I would want to put in some research before trying it.
