@boot - I can still shift into the smallest cogs, but it's not the best
shifting. Although, the shifting into those cogs before wasn't the best, so
take this with a grain of salt. I've only been able to use 10th when I have a
brand new setup (frame, wheel, derailleur, etc.), otherwise all my bikes never
see 10th. So for me, this really isn't an issue.
At first, I put on a long cage derailleur as per the instructions. But since
the Podium doesn't seem to have a bunch of chain growth, I didn't think I
needed it. But with either derailleur, I could still get down to the smallest
cogs (actually a little better with the short cage).
If you have a bike design with a lot of chain growth (VPP, etc), then I would
go for the medium cage derailleur. There's no way a short cage with the 42t
cog would have worked on my Carbine.
Hope this helps.
