This replaced the same model in sgs or long cage. The medium cage works much better with 2X10 for many reasons here are a few. Shorter chain [ 6 links lighter ] and less chain movement up and down. Lighter and less obtrusive than long cage. Quicker shifts even with the clutch activated. Looks better because it is more compact.
I switched from 3X10 to 2X10 and before I got this double shifting was not spot on. Now it works great up and down with fast reliable shifts under all conditions. This one is much smaller than the same model for 3X10 and feels lighter.
My Avid Elixir brakes always had great stopping power but the noise from the rears were driving me nuts.There was a honking noise at moderate braking and organic pads worked when dry but were worse when wet.I even tried different brands and sizes of rotors,sanding pads etc.I dropped a set of the Extreme pads in and all noise is gone and the braking is stronger and modulation is better than any brand or compound I have tried.
