Ask Pinkbike: Upgrade an Entry-Level Bike, Zee for XC, Bracing for Autumn's Chill
"""Question: Piman asks in the All-Mountain, Enduro & Cross-Country forum: I am putting together a one-by drivetrain on my hardtail XC rig and I can only get the discount through the shop that I work at on a Shimano Zee rear mech. Obviously, there is no chain growth to worry about, and I plan on running an 11 x 36-tooth cassette, which is what the freeride version of Zee is rated for. So, can I get the right shifting performance on an XC bike with a short cage derailleur? If it means anything, I am going to run a 32-tooth chainring. bigquotes You are in luck. The freeride (FR) version of the Shimano Zee short-cage rear derailleur is designed to follow the steeper angle of the wide-ratio 11 by 36-tooth, ten-speed cassette, and its cage can take up a difference of 25 teeth - which happens to be 36 minus 11. The Zee parallelogram is basically the same as Shimano's XC models and the newer ones have the Shadow-Plus clutch, so it should be perfect for the task. Your 32-tooth chainring is not a problem. You are using a one-by drivetrain, so it makes no difference how large or small the chainring is, because the cassette determines the derailleur's chain take-up capacity. BTW: the DH version of the Zee derailleur is designed to trace the more obtuse angle of an 11 by 21, or an 11 by 28 cassette, but it shares the same 25-tooth chain take-up capacity. That means you could also make the DH mech' work in a pinch, by turning in the B-tension screw until the upper pulley clears the 36-tooth cog. Make sure that you use a narrow-wide chainring. - RC""" I've been running this setup on my 110mm Superfly and it's been working perfect. 11-36 in the rear. Zee short cage, 36 Raceface NW in the front. Zee 10 speed shifter. After finding the sweet spot on the B - Tension screw I never had an issue with dropping a chain. Shifting is great. I'm also using a Shimano 11 spd. chain.

This is like that Italian POS that floated around a few months ago. Over engineered. There are some things you just need to keep simplified.
