    Rush 2006 - Which rear mech. type?

    Hi all
    It's time to renew my drivetrain.
    XT cranks, chain, cassette and shifters are on their way, but as for the XT rear derailure - Which type? (Low/ Medium/ which pull etc.???)
    Thanks

    What shifters are you ordering? Low Normal work best with Dual-Control levers, if you are getting Rapid Fires, Top Normal is best. The new Shadow is a Top Normal. As for the cage length, unless you only run 2 chainrings or a small, close ratio road cassette, get a long cage.

    I'm getting the rapid fires, 07 model, so it's long/ top normal for me.

    Thanks a lot for your help Dan, it's a pleasure learning from you.
