Just purchased a new fuel ex8 and want to convert it to 1x10. Currently have a giant trance x with an xt shadow medium cage derailleur and have been very happy with it.

I like the idea of the new clutch type rear derailleurs and want to know if the zee short cage ssw (11-36) compatible rear mech. would work with my setup. I'm not sure if the short cage will accommodate the chain growth from the rear suspension as it cycles through its travel.

I would assume so since the zee line is primarily designed for freeride type setups running single chainrings and long travel dual sus bikes.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks guys!
