No more issues - went to long cage.
I was having the clicking issues with a medium cage xo type 2 on a carbon tallboy with a 2x10 (11-36) setup. I switched to the XO long cage and have the chain length exactly as prescribed by SRAM (measure it in big/big OUT OF REAR DERAILLER, with suspension - if applicable fully compressed, then add one link AND the powerlink).
With that, my clicking is gone and shifting is nice.
Its not a chain growth issue
I just installed a new x9 type 2 short cage and no matter what gear i put the cassete in when I push down on the suspension it makes thee clunking sound. If I put my hand on the clutch part of the deraileur I can feel it. I ride a 1X10 and putting it in the 11T in the casset were it has the most slack of chain you can still hear the clunk. It comes down to good ideas with piss poor planning and production :madman:
Ive included pics of how the deraileur looks like in the 11T and in the 36T of the rear cassette. Youll notice that its not a chain slack issue when its in the 11T.
