    Reign RD Cage Length / Short, Medium, Long?

    I have a 2010 Reign and need to buy a new X9 rear derailleur. But, I can't find what the OEM length is - short (guessing not), medium? long?

    Depends on the chainring combination. Long and medium will work with double and triple set-ups. A short cage is used with a single chainring.

    When to use a Long Cage vs Short Cage Derailleur?

    Doesn't matter what the original length was. Figure out if you get by with a short/medium cage.

    What womble said.
    But, FWIW, I have a 2010 Reign 1, with the original long cage X9 RD.
