Gearing Question

Postby beetroot » 7 Jun 2014, 8:31pm

Help please, I'm looking for some technical know how advice.

I have a Shimano 105 (5600 series) compact, with a 12-28 cassette. Bits are getting a bit worn, so will need replacing. I thought I might chose to extend the gear range by fitting a Sram 12-32 cassette, and replacing rear derailleur with a 105 (700 series) medium cage, oh and a new chain.

Would this work?
Will I need any other parts?

Thanks in anticipation,

David

should work fine, no worries. Just remember to set the chain length a bit longer with the new setup.

cheers

no worries. I can't help but think that those last two teeth come at a price though;

you can get 12-30 10s for £12.99, which appeals to the embedded cheapskate in me no end...
