    thinking upgrades for 06 trophy pro

    Looking at chainreactions and seeing some good deals. If I wanted to upgrade my front and rear deraileurs which XT ones would I want? Convential/Top for front what size is the frame there and which rear long/superlong rapid confusing for someone who isn't a geek like u fellas.

    Edit: I meant Trophy Comp...i have Lx components now.

    Personally I would upgrade the rear derailleur before the front, the front does very little work.

    Agreed...think I'm going with the XT shadow rear derailleur....the longest cage I guess. Since the front is only $30 might as well get it too.

    should i get 31.8-34.9 Dual Pull or the 28.6-34.9 Dual Pull. Conventional or Top swing....guessing it doesn't matter since I don't have clearance issues on a hardtail.

    conventional is when the cable pulls the derailer from above.
    top swing is below.
    some shimanos will come with siving clips and either swing. one sive fits all. i have an lx that is like that, not sure about the xt..
    i use a short cage and i still bent the damn thing. not sure on what the differece is though..

    The front dérailleur on the 06' Trophy Comp:
    Low clamp
    Top swing
    Top pull (dual pull will work)
    31.8mm clamp (31.8-34.9 is the better pick..the 28.6 is mostly used on steel frames) (ID# 70107)
