    SRAM X9 Type II cage length confusion

    SRAM says the X9 type II medium cage can handle a max chain wrap of 35 teeth. My bike has chain wrap of 36, so according to SRAM I need a long cage. But a stock Specialized Enduro has a total chain wrap of 37 and it comes with a medium cage X9 type II. I'm confused as to which cage length to buy. Thanks!

    Youll be good with medium, i run a medium x0 on a 36 tooth setup. general rule of thumb is short cage for 1x system, medium cage for 2x system, and long cage for 3x system. Although there are some exceptions to the rule.

    I agree with Ryandurepo. I have the X9 Type II medium cage derailleur that I'm using on a 36 tooth SRAM 1030 cassette with no problems. In fact, I'm going to a One-Up 42 tooth cog once it arrives as I am running 1x10.
