I have an XT RD-M786 rear mech, which measures 95mm between jockey wheel centres.

Can anyone tell me if it's GS or SGS? I can't find any other markings on it anywhere, and can't find the actual cage length (in mm) info anywhere on the internet!

thanks!

Finally found the answer - 95mm between pulleys is SGS (long cage) :)

Modern mechs have really long cages, it's why they had to make wheels bigger, to keep the cage away from the ground. Bigger wheels created the need for bigger cassettes which luckily were possible because of the longer cages. I'm pretty sure it happened in that order!!!! :roll:
