Anyone out there running a SRAM X.O medium cage rear derailleur on their Rush? I was thinking about doing this but wondered if the rear suspension prohibited using this setup? By the way I am running a 22-32-44 and an 11-32 cassette.

I am using one, but with a 12-32 cassette. You should have no problem at all as 1 less tooth would not make a problem for my setup- plenty of cage for the job.
When in the small ring up front, I do not go beyond the 5th gear(18 tooth cog) in the rear, but it can still cross over to the 2 big rings with no problem.
If you cross chain at both ends, you will not have enough cage though.
Mine shifted flawlessly until I got a stick caught in the derailleur 2 weeks ago. Even with a new hanger, it is still not as crisp as it was. I think it tweeked the derailleur a bit.
