Hey Crew,

Do you all know if I can use a short cage road der. (say Ultegra or 105 9sp) with a 30t or 32t mountain cassette?

Shimano says only up to 27 teeth, but...

I'll be using a single 36t front ring if that matters.

Thanks,

LP

you should be ok w/ that combo. I run a 12x32 cassette with a 38/46 setup and a 105 9spd derailleur. The only gear that i can't get to work is the 32x46, which i wouldn't use anyway (i run out of chain length). but everything else--including the ultra low gear (32x38)--works just fine.
