HI quick question will a 9 spd SLX work as a 10spd?

Thanks

    9 speed slx what?

    Front shifter and mech, yes, rear shifter is a no, rear mech only is you use a flat barred road shifter and not an MTB shifter.

    For someone with links as a bike mechanic in their sig it's a scary question.

    How many different SLX parts are there atht could be called SLX 9spd?
    Chainset, chainrings, front mech, rear mech, front shifter, rear shifter, chain, saying 'SLX 9spd' was about as useful as saying 'Shimano'!

    Instead of asking a 'quick question' why don't you take time and ask a 'proper detailed question'?
