    New question here. Short or Medium Cage RD on Epic

    Hey, putting a SRAM XO on my 04 epic for next year. I was wondering if there was any advantage of getting a short cage RD as opposed to a medium cage, other than the few grams saved. Less Chain suck w/ the short cage maybe???

    Peace

    supposedly less chain slap, and crisper shifting. just don't shift into the big / big combo (or close) as you would probably rip the derailer apart.
