So...I'm switching back to full SRAM X0.
I currently have a 10 speed XTR M980 "long cage" SGS rear derailleur running on an 11/36 cassette w/ a sram x0 crank set running 38/24/bash rings. The bike came stock with this setup.
Was I correct in ordering a long cage x0 rear? According to the chain wrap calculation I'm at a 39 which is (front 38-24) + (rear 36-11) = 39.
The mid cage sram x0 rear is rated only to a 35 chain wrap capacity although its spec'd on many bikes running the same gearing as mine?
The long cage is supposed to handle up to a 47 chain wrap capacity.
I also ordered the long cage so I could still use my existing chain and not have to re-size since it only has 300 miles on it.
Do any of you see any issues with the long cage or am I being over zealous in my thinking and it will work just like the long cage shimano thats on there now?
