I'm about to order a saint rear mech for my DH rig, running a saint 38t Single up front and an 11-28 on the rear can i get away with the SS or do i need the GS.

Thanks

  • edit.. I didn't read that properly.


    You'll have to look at the specs on shimano site, that is a big ring your're running.

    GS is..
    Maximum Sprocket : 28/34T
    Minimum Sprocket : 11T
    Front Difference : 14T
    Total Capacity : 31/37T

    SS is..
    Maximum Sprocket : 28/34T
    Minimum Sprocket : 11T
    Front Difference : single front chainring
    Total Capacity : 17/23T
  • I looked at that on the shimano site and it just flew about a foot over my head :?

    So looking at the SS the cassette can be 28t or 34t max and 11t min, with any single front chainring. The total capacity is confusing me 17/23t ??

    Cheers
  • Thanks m8 penny dropped eventually

    38t single at front so no difference, 11-28 at rear 17t difference so 17t total capacity, so SS it is then.
