    Shimano Front Mech lengths?

    I recently built up a Titus Motolite with an X9 front der. Thing is when im in my granny gear the chain happens to be resting on the plate that joins the front and rear plates. And when im in the middle chainring on a rocky decent it would be slapping the plate but not as bad as when im in the granny.
    So......Shimano looks like they make their XTs and XTR front der in diffferent configurations for different seat tube angles. Does anyone know if they are different lengths so they can clear the chain and chainrings?

    if your bike is a full sus then i would worry more that the mech dont hit the rear swingarm on compression.
