Hi guys,

I have a Giant Anthem X3 2014 with a 3x10 setup and I was thinking of upgrading to a 1x11 or a 1x10 setup.

Here's what I have right now:
Shimano Deore M615 rear derailleur, rear shifter, front derailleur and cranks
KMC 10 speed chain
Sram 11-36 rear cassette

Heres what I'm looking to upgrade to:
Sunrace 11-46 rear cassette
1x OneUp components oval chainring
XT/SLX 11 speed rear shifter

Here's the dilemma:
I don't really want to buy a new 11 speed rear derailleur, and I don't want to buy a Roadlink to extend it.
Is there a brand like OneUp who makes a extended cage that offsets the top jockey wheel enough to clear a 46T cassette? I know they make cage for the 11 speed SLX/XT/XTR to clear a 50T.
My Derailleur already accepts up to a 42T, so just 1-2 cm offset must make it able to clear it right?
Is there anyone who makes this stuff? Or will a extended 11 speed SLX/XT/XTR cage fit on my 10 speed Deore?
(Sorry for the long post Im just really curious)

I have 2 1x10 setups with RD-M786 derailleurs;
30t oval 11-42 with extended B Screw & slightly modified derailleur.

30t oval 11-46 with goat link.

Both work well and will only drop a cog with lots of back pedalling.

Hi thanks that what I ended up doing on my enduro bike with the same derailleur, a Deore 11-42 cassette, and a 11 speed cage. I did need to wind in the B - Screw all the way though..

(The reason for a 11 speed cage is because the upper pulley is horizontally offset to let it clear up to 46T, but I only need to clear a 42T)
