Hi guys, sorry if this isnt the right place for this post.

ive recently had an introduction to DH at Ae forest, i bought an 08 Gaint glory, bit old but will do for me, however theres a few things ive had to sort.

I am currently running a 11-32t casette, a 38T front ring and a medium cage mech. One of the lads i know that does Dh uses a close ratio casette with a short cage.

Can i use a close ratio casette and a shortcage with a 38T chain ring?
can i use my 11-32t casette and shortcage mech with the 38T ring?

im thinking about a short mech so it stands less chance of getting clipped by rocks and all

any constructive advice appreciated
