Hey there,

I've just installed a 1X setup on an old bike. It's a bit of a mish mash of parts, but i'm having a little issue with the SRAM X9 Type 2 rear mech. It's a second hand one that was given to me by a friend after an upgrade.

It's going up the cog (to the larger cogs) without problems, but seems to be slow or not go back down to a smaller cog. The cable tension is not the problem, and if I give the cable on the down tube a tug it "wakes" the mech up and it shifts down.

This is the first time i've used a clutch rear mech and was wondering if that was the problem? If not, does a spring need replacing? - Design-Led home furniture and accessories.
