Wondering if anybody has this running. Shimano says their short cage RD's work with up to 27 tooth cogs. But a SRAM Powerdome seems to be $50 cheaper and about 50g lighter.

Just expect to have a much noisier cassette than if you got a Shimano. Get an Ultegra or 105. Or I'll trade my 1070 12/27 for either Shimano :p

Thanks - I was concerned about the short cage derailleur pulley clearing the 28 tooth cog. Heard about the noise issue, but I don't know if I can resist the cool machined tech. Just waiting for my 7800 cassette to wear out...
