Is there any performance degradation between using a standard cage when you go to either a medium or long cage (and possibly longer chain)when accomodating a cluster with bigger low gears (like going to a 29 in a Campy 10 speed; medium cage recommended)for like gears?
not in my experience...merckx56

I rode a XT long cage rear der with ultegra shifters on an old 'cross bike and it shifted perfectly everytime. I'd think that campy would shift just as well given that the stuff is actually designed to go together.
