When you clamp the cable like so it will shift standard shimano 7 speed

I've always run short cages since the late 80s, the 7400 is limited to a 26 rear cog which is plenty with my 22 granny gear. I can climb a wall like hill on a nearby trail, the lightweight total bike helps too

its very light and I think it adds some bling. My other bike are a 2008 Dawgma for real BC trail riding, a 93' Kona Kilauea, a 1990 Bianchi Sika, 1994 Rocky Mountain Vapor and a 1996 GT Zaskar
