    New question here. Shimano M786 GS or SGS?

    Hi all
    I'm looking to replace my old 10 speed mech with a SHimano M786 Shadow + mech. My question is:
    Do I go for GS or SGS (long or medium) cage?

    I'm running 2 x 10 with 40/28 front and 11-34 rear on an Intense 6.6
    Cheers

    You have 35 tooth difference. Check the rating for the derailleur. You probably exceed the rating for a medium by a couple of teeth but it should still work, specially since you probably don't use small-small combination.
