    Cheap short cage derailleur options?

    I am refitting three of my bikes with short cage derailleurs. What are some of the cheaper options? One bike uses a shimano shifter, two use SRAM shifters.

    There are lots of choices out there as long as you stay within the same brand. If you can't find an MTB derailleur within your budget, consider using a low end road RD.

    The key to solving any problem is to understand and address the underlying cause.

    Shimano-Nashbar Road Derailleur, made by Microshift and works to at least a 32t cog (I currently run it on a 11-32 cassette on my road bike).

    SRAM-2010 X-7 comes in a short cage (for SRAM X series shifters)
