    Carbine and XTR M986 RD

    Anyone know if this rear derailleur will work on the Carbine, didn't realize I ordered the one that can be direct mounted until I rec'd it. Can it be used in conjunction with a Derailleur hanger or do I need to send back and get an M985?

    You got the Shadow plus right?

    I've got the RD 986 SGS on my Carbine 275 3x10. Fits perfect.

    Great, thanks. Can't wait to set this whole bike up. Putting it on a small Carbine 275, which FD did you use?

    Consider buying a spare drive side dropout for the 275.

    Yes, it should fit fine on the T29. The M986 RD mounts to a normal hanger or you can remove the small standard mount extension and use it for direct mount. For 2x10 I would go med cage.
