RD cage length

Postby tempsperdu » 1 Aug 2018, 2:52pm

Can anyone confirm that a SRAM X9 2x10 type 2 long cage is 100mm centre to centre please?
Also where is the technical stuff hidden on the SRAM website regarding cog and chain capacity?

I have a SRAM X9 2x10.
(I don't know what type 2 means)

I measured mine and maybe it isn't a long cage but it is 7.5cm.
Assuming you mean centre of jockey wheel to centre of jockey wheel?

Yes centre to centre. Type 2 has a clutch mechanism - apparently. It's supposed stop chain slap on rough descents or the crap road surfaces round here but doesn't.
I cant find the information on the sram website regarding cage length but working on the assumption its a long cage.
I want to fit a Sunrace 11-42 cassette and also wanted to check the chain capacity but I cant find that either.
It would be nice if I didn't have to fit a goat link.
