    rear derailleur upgrade for a good price

    So for some inexplicable reason, Yeti does not come with a Shadow+ RD. Well if you have not upgraded already, Competitive Cyclist has the silver M786 Shadow+ RD for $70. I rarely see them under $100 so seems like an excellent deal.

    Is the Shadow+ a noticeable upgrade? I picked up one from Chainlove last week.

    I have never ridden a bike with a clutched RD but from what everyone says, they are an amazing upgrade. Mine should be delivered on Saturday and then I have a planned ride on Sunday so I'll try and get it installed and let ya know how it goes.

    Rode with a clutch derailleur for the first time today. So quiet that I found myself trying to listen for chain noise, but there was none. I'll never buy another derailleur that doesn't have a clutch.

    The clutch is great but for me I have broken two of the little metal bands inside the housing that goes around the on/off switch. Each lasted ~1.5 months and I did not have any hard hits. Once they break the chain starts making more noise.

    Anyone else have this issue?
