    Component Help

    Well i think I have decided to upgrade to Sram x-0. I need a new front derailer, and I am not putting another crap derailer on like now(shimanoe deore). So I figure I will upgrade, and if I do one part, I HAVE to do the rest. That with the fact that performance has a 20% off sale today, I think I am going with all X-0.

    So my question, what is the difference between a long cage, and medium cage rear derailer?
    Road Bike- 2003 Trek 2000(out of service, rear triangle bent, looking for replacment)
    Triathlon/TT- 2003 Cervelo P3(also looking to upgrade to the P3C)
    MTB- 2006 Rocky Mountain Element Team
    Cats don't like riding on a bicycle......no matter how much duct tape you use.

    What cassette are you going with? If you are running a 34 tooth cassette you should go with with a long cage derailleur to be safe.

    Also, SRAM only makes one front derailleur. Make sure it will work with your bike.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
