42t One-Up or one of the alternatives with a RapidRise rear mech ? has anybody tried it ? Currently on a 1x9 (30t x 12-36t) but wouldnt mind the extra range of a 11-42 , but not willing to give up my RapidRise rearmech! (Yes U Can run a 10speed system with a RapidRise , U just need a 10 speed flatbar skifter , like a SL-R780 or the cheaper Tiagra version)

OK , didnt work , new XT cassette,chain,42 OneUp and almost new (prob 500km) NOS LX rapidrise rear mech. Had to get a little creative with the Btension but got it to work , but mech spring just wouldnt pull it from the 36 to the 42 on its own. Everything was running smoothly when helped onto the 42 and everywhere else on the cassette , but spring just wouldnt pull from 36 to 42, bummer.
Now for the big decision ; keep rapidrise and stick with a 11-36 or go to the darkside and run a normal mech with a 42..........hmmmmmm
