This might not be the answer you're looking for, but two weeks ago I switched out my Rival rear deraileur and 12-26 cassette to a apex medium cage rear deraileur and 11-32 rear cassette, I had to put on a longer chain. Shifting wise, everything works just fine. I have the Rival shifters, no issues.
