Yeah, this derailleur shifts great and is awesome, but why the heck do companies keep making rear derailleurs with carbon cages?!? These are for mountain bikes people!! I had this der. for 2 months (I ran a 960 rear for 2 years until replacing it with this, but it is still in good shape) until a rock bounced up and hit the cage and broke it in half 10 miles from the finish of a 100k mtb race, and I was in 4th place at the time. Called Shimano and they said "you might as well get a new derailleur since the cage is so expensive" Then what is the point of having it be replaceable??? And, you can't use an aluminum cage from the XT Shadow because they are not mounted the same way. So basically, get the XT shadow, it shifts just as well, costs less than half as much, and it won't @#$^!&^ break in half when a little rock hits it! Oh yeah, it weighs like 20 grams more... big deal... give me an aluminum cage any day...

Ok, going by other peoples reviews, I ordered a size up - large instead of medium. I could barely get my head through the jersey, and it squeezed the hell out of my neck. The chest and length was good when just standing, but, when arms are outstretched in riding position, the cut under the armpits causes the jersey to pull up like crazy at the hem. I did not like it at all and am returning it.
