Here's the deal, replacing my M770 non shadow RD which is a "short" type.

Got myself an M772 shadow GS supposedly also short.

The cage on the new RD looked long, so I compared old and new.

Axle to axle, the jockeywheels are 67mm apart on the old, and 85mm apart on the new. Nominal.

I just want to make sure that I did actually get a GS and was not sent an SGS (long) rd by mistake.

Can anyone advise what either a GS (short) or SGS (long) axle to axle measurements are on the M772 shadow RD? Either measurement will work.

Could well be that the cages have gotten longer, or I got the wrong size sent out, would prefer to clear it up before kicking up a fuss, potentially about nothing :oops:

Thanks in advance, it's good to be back!
