As far as I see it I have 3 main options:
1. Sram Force 1 rear derailleur with r2c shifter (pros: never dropped a chain in 2 years, r2c. cons: big RD, maybe some watts lost with clutch?)
2. Sram Red 22 rear derailleur with r2c shifter (pros: smaller aero profile, r2c, lighter. cons: higher potential for dropped chain?)
3. Shimano RX800 rear derailleur with standard shifter (pros: looks the best IMO, relatively cheap cons: standard non r2c shifters)
Chainrings will of course depend on the crankarms but I will 100% be running narrow wide.
Am I overlooking an option here? I'll likely mostly be running 11-28 with the occasional 11-32 so all these RD's support the 32.
