Started this discussion. Last reply by Steven Sprague on Wednesday. 7 Replies

Is there a Shimano "Shadow Plus" short cage MTB derailleur in a non-"Dyna-Sys" variety for use with 10 speed road shifters for cyclocross? I want a clutch type derailleur for a front single chainring?Continue

"CM, If you read my first response, I mentioned that I am running the above rear derailleur and not the XTR 972 9 speed Shadow version.  There was no 9 speed Shadow + but I think the Saint 810 9 speed version may work pretty well since…"

"Here's info and images on Shadow plus Steven: http://www.cxmagazine.com/shimano-adds-shadow-plus-to-xtr-enhances-deore-xt-group ; I'm bummed because I was surprised to hear there may have been a 9-speed Shadow +. "

"Hey Cyclocross Magazine, Here's some pictures of my drive train.  I double checked and it's an XTR 952 rear derailleur.  Yes, the cable maybe a little short but I was transferring it from another bike and didn't want to put…"

Today is the last day to register for Charm City Cyclocross on Sept. 20-21 in Baltimore. It is going to be amazing this year, it's the race's 10th anniversary. Register for both days, the course should be different each day: https://www.bikereg.com/25205 There will be some majorly cool features. There should be a bunch of pros racing, including Helen Wyman. Last year Jonathon Page races and Richard Sachs came with his CX team and raced Masters. Great…See More

"Steven, post a photo of your setup when you have a second. What's the model # of your derailleur? "

Steven Sprague replied to Erik Annis's discussion Is there a Shimano "Shadow Plus" short cage MTB derailleur that's not "Dyna-Sys"
"Hey Erik, Yes, Shimano made a 9 speed "Shadow+" mtb derailleur before Dyna Sys but they might be hard to find.  I currently run 10 speed 105 shifters/cassette using an XTR 952 9 speed rear derailleur flawlessly.  Since 10 speed…"

"Kurt Schauwecker  Great advice: I am curious, what are your top 3 "mud style" tubular tire favorites?  It seems you prefer a rubber casing vs a higher TPI soft cotton tire. "

"Thanks Kurt Schauwecker ! That makes me feel better about my decision to get 2 pairs of Mavic Open Pro/ Ultegra wheels (over the velocity A23, HED Ardennes Plus, or a super wide 29er type width rims). The Inner Rim Width of the…"

"Wow-  I have not heard of a properly seated tire's bead popping off the rim, that defeats the purpose for sure!  Are there any other manufacturers making a similar cotton casing clincher, with better results in use?"

Erik Annis replied to Ryan R's discussion Best all around cyclocross tubular
"What do you guys think about "open tubular" clinchers with latex tubes; vs tubulars.  The Challenge versions have a very similar high TPI cotton casing (like the tubular versions).  I can run fairly low pressures (on my…"

"If it was me buying a new set this year (for racing in Maryland) it would be Challenge Chicane rear; Challenge Baby Limus front. That being said, I use Challenge Grifo open tubular clinchers with latex tubes for everything, and LOVE that setup, but…"
