Hi, I would like to know if my short cage will deal with a 32t rear sprocket please? Thanks.

    very, very unlikely..
  • Hmmm no, just unlikely but possible.
  • I have run an 11-32 50-34 (all 105 5800 series) set in the Alps with an short cage rear dérailleur without issues - for 2 annual visits now

    I needed to adjust the B Screw and even with that it just caressed the 32t Cassette - slight ticking noise only. I did not run the big-big (50-32) gear though

    When in the UK I remove it and run a 11-28 (as the hills are not as long)
  • Yes works well. Did this 500 miles ago and no issued. Just don't go big to big. Adjust b screw only

    Great news. I will give it a try then. Thanks

    Replace your existing two/three chainrings with one "narrow/wide" chainring eg. for a year I replaced the 24/38T chainrings on my Wazoo with a 34T OnOne Ringmaster, in combination with an 8-speed 11-30... Until I discovered Dell Road in SO18 that hits ~20+% and made my knees sore! :lol:
