Any recommendations for light front mech in this setup:

frame wilier 101xn, bottom pull, 34.9
Sram x-0 10 speed shifter
Raceface Next 38-26 crankset.

Anybody tried this setup with road front mech (sram force/red?)

Don't go titanium caged model of red. They are too soft and won't shift well. I'm running a Dura Ace 7900 front mech on mine, combined with twisters and I did it on both a Lightning crankset and now on a XX. No problems at all and the shifting is perfect.

Sounds like a plan..Do you think it would work ok with a trigger shifters?

Yup. Afaik, front mechs can be used independently between brands and models (excluding electronic groupsets).
