Just made the switch to 2x10 XT bits for my MTB from an older XTR triple setup. The der was formerly a 952 XTR top pull, now is 786 dual pull. The cable clamp bolt on the old derailleur was effectively on the non-drive side of the frame, allowing the cable to point straight down the back of the seat tube, but the clamp bolt on the new der is right near the chainring.
I've got the thing on there and the cable routed through the clamp bolt just as Shimano's diagram shows, but the cable comes down from the seat cluster cable stop at a steep angle and where it enters the derailleur it seems to be two or three inches from the frame. It shifts great but it makes no sense to have the cable so unprotected when I wipe out - I was honestly worried about heel clearance. Did I route this thing wrong? There's no way the cable should point so far away from the seat tube. Do I need something like a cross clamp pulley to do it right?
