    Paradox owners: 2.35" rear tire / front derailleur fitting

    Hi,
    I'm running a Panaracer Rampage rear tire which leaves no room for my current derailleur - I think it's an older Shimano somthin-X model.

    I just want to confirm that the SRAM X.9 high-clamp top-pull derailleur is the one I want. I found a few mentions of this derailleur working w/ bigger tires.

    Anyone?

    thanks!

    That's the one. I'm fitting a 2.3 Eskar on a Flow back there with a little bit of room to spare.

    Flows on mine too. They really maximize a tire's width.

    Thanks. They ride awesome, no matter the color. I'm glad that I went Paradox.
