    Stick with what you have as it will work fine.

    Otherwise try the FAQs above.

  • Oops sorry when I said stick with the long what I mean't was I have always had long running double or triples. Now starting from scratch I have neither but the choice

    An MTB short cage will usually work fine for 1x9, check out the relevant tech docs on Shimano/SRAM websites.
