    Those running XX1 on SB95C, photo of the rear derailluer cable needed.

    It seems that the SRAM XX1 entry point on the rear derailleur is much more horizontal than that of the XTR derailleur. With the cable exit point (port) of the chain stay so close to the rear, there is not much room to loop the cable without kinking it. The cable entry on the XTR derailleur on the other hand is almost vertical witch allows for a nice loop of cable.
    Am I missing something?
    Any advice is most welcome.

    I just finished my SB95C build and the cable runs out and fits ok in the XX1 derailleur ,
    it tucks in nice to the frame and kinda wraps above the axle .
    no problem

    Thanks kelstr, I'm finished as well, just decided that although it wasn't the same look as the XTR, it was "good enough" . I also noted that when I rotated the XTR derailleur, in the SB95, the cable just moved in and out of the hole in the frame instead of flexing. I surmised that the same would be true with the 95C and XX1.
    Now if I can just get used to the XX1 shifter . Didn't realized how much I used the XTR index finger control.
