    Long cage rd on double?

    Will a long reach rear derailler work with a double up front? I recently inherited a 105 rd with about 3000 miles on it, which I assume is better than the 15+ year old 6500 rd that I currently have (correct assumption?). The bike it came off was a triple, so the 105 rd is a long cage. Will the newer rd work, and will it give me problems if it does work?

    Thanks

    The long cage will make no difference in function.

    6500 RDs have not been made for anywhere near 15 years. I believe that 1998 would be the oldest.
