Also, how do you mean about the B screw adjustment?
Good question! I suppose at the highest levels of MTB competition, maybe people were using tighter cassettes and going faster, and having parts that were a little more "road" helped.

Sheldon Brown's page has some good stuff about the B-tension screw here: https://www.sheldonbrown.com/deraile....html#btension Usually, he discussed it in the context of wanting to put on a cassette with bigger cogs for lower gearing, so needing to turn the screw in to clear the cogs. I'm generally thinking about it from the opposite direction, and quite often remove the B-screw entirely.
