    I need a sram rear mech for use with10 speed 11-32 cassette on my fast hybrid. Reliable, good quality v cost, anything on a deal you know about?

    Don't really want to go above £50.

    TIA.

    If its for a hybrid, I think you'll be looking at the X5 (medium cage?) for around £35. As far as I know, the cheaper Apex series are designed for use with road levers, not trigger shifters so have a different pull ratio.

    Thanks for the reply, I've ordered the apex earlier, it is an exact actuation 1:1 pull ratio which the one is replacing is. I asked wiggle and they say it will be compatible.

    As the pull ratio is 1:1 on both the apex derailleur and the one it's replacing and you could put an 11-32 cassette on either a road bike or hybrid with flat bars and trigger shifters surely it would move the same to climb the cassette.
