    I've been running a 11-32 for a while. Thinking about running a 11-34. 32t up front with a LG1+. was just wondering how the short cage rear mech would shift up to the 34 in the back...

    I have two 1X9's, a 1x10 and a 1X6

    26" dh - 36 tooth ring, 11-32, full chain guide (LG1), short cage
    29" trial - 32 tooth ring, 17-34 6 speed on a SS hub, Paul chain keeper, long cage
    29" xc - 36 tooth ring, 11-34, bash gaurd and N-Gear jump stop, long cage
    CX - 40 tooth, 11-28 (10-speed), paul chain keeper, short cage (sram force)

    I'm about to convert my 5 spot to a 1x9 with a 32 tooth ring and an 11/34 ill probably go the bash/N-gear if i can get it to fit If that doesn't work I will try an E-Thirteen XCX. I have never needed a roller type chain guide on anything under 7" of travel. I tend to use long cage derailure just because thats what i have on hand.

    32T, 11-34, RaceFace Bash and BBG inner guard, XT short cage on my TNT sultan.


    had to go with the inner guard because of the shock mount, and my short cage has no problems getting into the 34T cog.

    Just so you don't get all cocky, I tried 32front and 34 rear and I couldn't ride up everything on my mountain. It was humbling and I learned I need a granny.

    - 34T Surly Chain ring
    - 11x34 XT Cassette
    - MRP Mini-G chain guide
    - XO Short Cage rear derailleur

    Shifting is buttery smooth and I'm loving the chainguide. I do have a strange popping sound sometimes when I torque. I might have my chain too tight.

    DH bike:
    36 T front
    11-34 cassette
    X9 short cage
    LG1 guide

    Shifts like buttah.

    You definitely could get away with a medium cage though.
