I have 3 long cage Force 1 (1x11, road levers) mechs and 1 X01 (1x11, MTB shifter) rear derailleur.gb123bike wrote: ↑Thu Dec 19, 2019 6:53 pmOoooh! Nice. That n-46 is my goal, if i can get to it. Would you mind saying exactly which RD you have (mode/cage len/10-or-11)?
I also used to have a Rival 1 long cage. They all can shift a 10-42 by spec, and all can take the 9-46 too.
(My 9-46 is pretty worn - got it used for v. cheap -, but with the correct chain length and b-screw adjustment I don't get any skipping. Would not be an issue with a new cassette anyway.)
There's also the cheap Apex 1 rear derailleur that will work just the same as the ones above.
I also use a 9-32 for road-only rides on these setups.
