    Saint RD with 11-36 and 32t

    I switched from an XTR to Saint rear derailleur on my large HD after hearing it will work with a 36t rear cassette. I'm running a 32t ring in the front (1x10) and when it's on the stand, it shifts perfectly, but when I sit on it and the suspension sags, the pulleys hit the 36t cog. Anyone else have this problem?

    You should be able to adjust the deraileur angle. I have the same setup with no issues

    Saint RD with 11-36 and 32t

    I put the extra piece when I installed it and played around with b-angle. Even with it all the way in it rubs.

    weird, I have the 36 tooth zee rear mech and it works a treat. I run a 22/32 front but I am going to try a 26 front with the 22 because I have one to see what happens. Maybe an idea to post a couple of piccs

    I have the Zee FR with 32T ring and 11-36. Had to adjust the b-screw, but works well. So quiet !

    The zee is made to work with a 36t, the Saint is not but a lot of people do anyways.
    I figured out the problem and had to add a link to the chain and its fine now.
