The OP says his system is a 2x6 and the levers are friction able. Since the main concern with narrower ft der cages and index shifting (which SO MANY WHO POST seem to only know) is a mix of der stroke, chain width, ring c-c and chain rub; a friction ft der lever will reduce this possible problem. The narrower cage the intended with the 7.3mm chain can, to a degree be simple trimmed. There are many reasons that a ft der cage breaks, replace one today at work. But poor set up and jam shifting are often involved. Andy.
