I've got an RD-M9000-GS (medium) rear derailleur with a 1x11 setup. The shortest cage offered is GS medium which in reality is not that short as it needs to work with a 2x11 setup. Is anyone making something a little shorter ala Shimano Zen style (but for 11-speed) so the chain can be shorter and more responsive??

Cheers and Merry Xmas! :beerchug:

Perhaps you can use an UL Di2 RD? Medium ranges 28-32 i think, and short is 23-28 if i am not off...

Be more surprised if it didn't fit, Shimano are strong on standardisation.
