    9 speed "Clutch" type rr der?

    Is there such a beast? Did an initial search here and a few online sites but came up empty handed.

    Contemplating a 1x setup and a "Dangler" type retainer but thinking about ready for a new der anyway and could go that route instead. Already have a top mount chain guide.

    Thanks in advance.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    From what I know, they don't make a 9 speed version. However, if you run SRAM 9-speed shifters, many have gotten Shimano 10-speed rear derailleur versions to work out of the box. There has been someone who modded an XT to work with Shimano 9-speed shifters effectively changing the pull ratio to the 9-speed and below while preserving 10-speed for future use. See at the link below near the bottom of the page.

    Thanks. That's kind of what I thought. Looks like ordering a Bionicon "C-Guide" is in the future if I decide to go the 1x route on the fs squishy trailbike. Don't want to limit my climbing in getting up to the good stuff this summer.
