    Rival 1 derailleur cage length question?

    I'm wondering if anyone can clear up what length derailleur cage I have. I just brought home a 2015 Cannondale SuperX cyclocross bike, and it has the Rival 1x drivetrain. In looking at the on-line spec's for this bike, it plainly says that it has a "short cage rear derailleur", but in looking at the SRAM page for this group it shows this derailleur only coming in a medium or long cage version. I ask this question because I want to go to a larger rear cluster, and want to make sure my derailleur is compatible, as only the medium cage will work with the 11-32 and 11-36 rear clusters. The measurement between the centers of the jockey pulley bolts is 75mm. I'm 99% sure I have the medium cage, I just want to make sure they didn't make an OEM only, short cage model, for my bike.

    Thanks in advance to anyone that may be able to help.

    Yes you have a Medium cage. I just measured mine and it is 75mm center to center of the jockey pulleys. I'm using it with 11-32. Also for reference I also have an older 10 Speed Short Rival RD and it measures 51mm.

    I also have a sram force 1X drive train and want to move to a 11-32 for my medium cage derailleur but have a question about cassettes. I know sram and shimano are interchangeable but is shifting better on one or the other 11 speed cassettes?
