    What size cage for my rear derailleur?

    Got my stuff for the 1x9 conversion. Here's what I have so far.
    BBG Bashguard
    34t Race Face unramped chainring
    N-Gear Jumpstop
    11-34t cassette
    Will I be OK with my current LX long cage or should I go with a med cage?

    Use what you have until it breaks
    mtbtires.com
    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I would go ahead and use the one you have. If you decide you want the short cage later you can always change the RD, but I doubt you are going to find any problems with the long.

    If you do go shorter, I'd go with a short cage instead of the medium if that is an option.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    i use a xt long cage 1x9 and have no issues, other than the chain bouncing around a little more.
