I currently have a Shimano Deore XT RD-M772-SGS. This is a long cage rear derailler. I'm changing to 1x9 this season. So I am changing to either a short cage or a mid cage.
The question is, which should I go with.
Shimano 'saint' shadow RD-M810-SS. Short cage for ~$185.
Shimano Deore XT RD-M772-GS. Mid cage for ~$110.
Is going to a short cage worth an additional $75? I don't care so much about the improved weight. I care mostly about how the shifting behavior will be.
Thanks for your opinion.
