    SRAM long or medium cage?

    Can someone explain to me the difference between long and medium? I'm assuming this is for the range of cogs the deraileur will cover. What exactly are the values? The SRAM website was no help.

    Thanks, my bad for not searching enough.

    I just have a loaded paypal account, and need to order all my parts tonight.

    a medium cage should cover most of everything you'ld ever use. it won't be able to take up the slack in the small chainring / smaller cogs is all (and you'll never be in those combos anyway).

    Unless you know what you're doing and what you're in for ... you should get the long cage.

    The consequence is that you'll try to shift into a gear and your chain may fall off the rings.

    Yup- here's another vote to make Nate's post a sticky.
