long cage, small cassette

by Cooks   February 7, 2013  

Hey guys,
Is there any disadvantage to running a long cage mech with a smaller cassette? Or should I go to the trouble of changing the mech back to the short cage?

Not really. Only thing I can think of is the 'crispness' of the shifting might be affected a little. Personally, I wouldn't bother changing unless aesthetics are really really really important to you.

I'd agree with arriere, I doubt you would notice the difference.

Long cage is normally required with a triple, regardless of cassette.
