Keep in mind Shimano 10 speed road and mountain have different amount of
pull. 10 speed road has the same total pull as 9 speed, so the pull for
each shift is less. 10 speed mountain (Dynasis) has significantly more
total pull, and the pull for each shift is greater.
When Shimano dynasis first came out, it seemed like a big pain as old
friction shifters were not compatible (unlike previous 7-8-9 transitions).
However, in the last few years a number of options have came out for 10
speed dynasis/mountain and friction shifting . Velo Orange Dia-Compe,
Microshift, Soma/IRD, and Gevenalle all have options whether you like
downtube, trigger/thumbie, or integrated with brake levers.
I've found 10 speed mountain/Dynasis to shift better than 9 speed, since it
actually has more tolerance for cable pull.
