Short answer: if you use all three rings on the front, long cage.. If you use two or one ring medium cage.Thanks. thought it would have been more complicated than that.

^Of course it'll "work" , that wasn't the question.. If you're using a short cage and accidentally drop into the granny gear when you're already on the small cog, drop your chain, and die, it won't work so well.
Long is allegedly supposed to give you better shifting, short definitely gives you more clearance. You don't really need the clearance down in without rocks and logs. Buy what is cheaper.
Not fighting, just trying to stop the spread of bad info. Couldn't care less about PEB's opinion.
I"ve dicided it's time to upgrade my rear deraileur. My question is...short, medium or long cage? What's the difference?
