It just has barely enough wrap. On a full suspension it's probably not going to work.


You have an M6000, right? What are you trying to do? If it's broken, any of the 11 speed RD's will swap for that
i have a Jones with Sram Nx drivetrain. I am thinking about building a “bulletproof hardtail”: Kona Honzo ESD with maybe a 1x10 drivetrain highlighted by Zee derailleur and shifter.
