    9spd RD for 12-36 cassette?

    As the title states which if any Shimano 9speed RD will work with a 12-36 cassette? Looking at all the info for them they state 34 tooth maximum. If it makes any difference I also plan on going 2x9 with a 22-32 front ring combo.

    Shimano says the Shadow versions. But most will work. May need to reverse the B-screw.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thanks for the quick answer shiggy. Now I just need to get the cassette and go from there!
