SRAM X9 derailleur short cage.

HI guys, looking for some help here. I have a Boardman comp hybrid with X5 shifters & rear derailleur. I am planning to upgrade to double tap shifters & X9 derailleurs. I would like to have a short cage fitted but am unable to verify if it is compatible with my cassette. My cassette is 11-32 & the chainset is 50 x 36.

I have checked SRAM's website but cannot find this piece of spec.

Anyone been in this situation or know off-hand if it will work?

Thanks, Stuart.

hi, all sram rear deraileurs will shift a 34 tooth cog. But the chain wrap is 32 teeth maximum for small, 37t forr medium and 45 for long. Good luck
