    Saint Rear Der Question.

    What are the differences between shortcage horizontal, shortcage vertical, mid cage vertical, midcage horizontal, long cage vertical, long cage horizontal. Could some on explain to me what this means? Advantages/Disadvantages? Which do I want on my 04 Stinky for heavy freeriding and some downhill?

    The lenght of the cage is up for you to decide. If you have 3 chainrings then you need the long cage. If you run two then the middle or short should work ok. Running one chainrings means you only need the short cage. Generally, if your doing DH or FR you want to keep to the shorter cages if you can. The horizontal and vertical thing is talking about your dropouts for your rear axel. Some are horizontal, most are vertical.

    Im pretty sure thats right but then again I'm no expert
