    rear derailluer size??

    26X38 crank and 11-34 rear cassette. Math says a medium cage will work, but wondering if anyone running same gearing and what size cage your using. X9 derailleur to be used. Also being used on a HT.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    rear derailluer size??

    It's generally pretty easy:

    Triple chainring = long cage
    Double chainring = medium cage
    Single chainring = short cage

    rear derailluer size??

    Which is why I made sure to say "generally". What cassette and what chainrings are you running on your triple with medium cage derailleur?
