Building up a commuter with standard 53/39 double and think a 15/25 or 16/27 cassette would be a good thing.

With the chain on the smallest cogs on this cassette (15 or 16), is there a history of the chain rubbing the rear dropout on road bikes?

I'm thinking I could use one of my spare cassettes and stack the 16 all the way against the end cap, see how close it comes.......before I order.

I think that is why they do not include the '10-speed-spacer' on anything lager than a 12t small cog cassette. - TF
