Is it possible for me to use a 9-speed cassette with only two chainrings up front? Also, what size cassette do I need for a 9 speed, mid cage derailleur?

Thanks,

Jack
Yes, you can. Search for 2x9 in this forum and you'll find all ya' wanna' know.

I run a 11-34 w/a 36/24 up front. You can run a 11-34, or 11-32, or whatever w/a 32/22 or 36/2 4 up front with a med cage...you could probably get away with a short cage on the 11-32 w/32/22 combo.

Yup, as mentioned.

I run my stock 22/32 chain rings with a bash guard on the crank and a 11-34 cassette.

I still run my long cage XT rear derailleur. Adjust your front derailleur so you don't shift the chain off of the ring. I don't have to adjust the chain length as I ride a Marin with an elevated swingarm, so I don't get chain slap.

Do you want to remove your granny or the big ring?
