Which model of the new XT rear works best with my old LX rapidfire shifters? I want my shift action to stay the same as always, but understand that some of the newer models work the other way.
---SteveUK said:You'll need the M771. The Shadow (M772) has a higher rate return spring, so the upshifts are a little more defined than previous XTs. It's not an enormous difference, but you'll spot it if you're keen. The M770 is low-normal, or 'rapid-rise', and sits on the largest sprocket when in its 'neutral' position and so is pushed across to the higher gears.
