Will the 2010 s-works frame accept the XTR 3x10 parts (rd/fd) from a 2009 bike without any extra effort or adapters?

The reason I ask is it looks like the front derailleur mounting on the 2010 frame may have a different cable routing setup for the FD (I guess because it is designed to work easily with the SRAM XX FD?)

If anyone can comment, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

-Eric

The 2010 S-Works Epic has two cable stops on the rear swing arm - one for Shimano front derailleurs and one for SRAM front derailleurs. You'll be able to use your existing derailleur with the frame.

The pic below is of mcmurv's 2010 S-Works Epic and shows the pair of cable stops. This bike is using a SRAM XX front derailleur. The unused Shimano cable stop is visible on the other side of the swingarm.:)
