Personally I like the downtube routing. I think it shifts a bit better. Every bike I have owned with top tube routing I've had little problems with. As far as the non-rapid rise rear derailluers I read somewhere that Shimano is going to keep making non-rapid rise rear derailluers (in LX, XT and XTR flavors) because they are so popular.
