    5.7 cage length

    What rear derailleur cage length are you guys running on a SRAM 2x10 11-36 on your 5.7?

    I just swapped out some parts on a Salsa Mukluk and used a long cage. Different bike, but still running 2x10 with 36T cassette.

    I crashed an had to run an X7 long cage while the LBS brought in a new X0 type 2 medium cage. The X7 long cage had many chain derails, riding the same trails I always ride I lost the chain 3-4 times where the X0 never lost the chain....not sure if it was the long vs medium cage or the X7 vs X0 or both.

    When I was running a Shimano 2x10 (26-38) + 11-34 out back, I was running a Mid-Cage and never had any issues.

    I've since gone 1x10 and while I could have gone with a short cage for that setup, I ended up going with a mid-cage SRAM Type 2 in case I get soft/weak at some stage and want my gears back!
