Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza".

i'm not using SRAM - i'm using an XTR rear derailer and Campagnolo shifters with the aid of a Jtek Shiftmate.

Jtek makes a Shiftmate to match SRAM rear mechs to Shimano/Campy shifters, if that's the way you want to go.

a SRAM mountain derailer should work with a SRAM road shifter just fine - they both expect the same amount of cable pull. it's just that SRAM calls it "1:1 Actuation" in the mountain line and "Exact Actuation" in the road line.

I've got a medium cage XT RD on my Double Cross with Dura Ace bar end shifters. Works great. (I've got 48/39 front rings and an 11-34 casette, which gives me a very nice usable range.)
