I killed my 1st derailleur today. A Rapid Rise XT. I sucked in a branch and twisted things up. I was able to ride out of the woods but I was one gear off of my indexing and was false shifting all over. I might be able to bend things back but Iím contemplating a replacement just in case.
So my question is how does the shadow shift compared to the RR. I love how I can shift with the RR while going up a hill and just hear the click of the change without any mashing. But I understand that the Shadow has itís advantages also. Such as cable routing and profile.
Any feedback from someone who has used both would be great! I would replace my derailleur with an XT or XTR if that makes a difference.
