Run a mid cage but not for clearance issues. There are differnt length cages to compensate for chain wrap. Chain wrap=(big cog-small cog) + (big ring-small ring). Most derailleurs have a chain wrap number given to them. Stay with in that number unless you are really careful and lever cross chain. I use a mid cage because it keeps the chain tighter than a long cage therefore giving me more accurate shifts. I also shorten my chain by 1 link and never cross chain. This combo will keep you shifting through anything, mud, dirt, snow.

Also keeps the drive train quiet, less chain slap so you can enjoy more mother nature although you might have to get a bell on the handlebar to warn the oncoming traffic now that ur so stealth :rolleyes:
