Hi I have a caadx 2016 model and when I'm riding up steep hills of which there is many in sheffield I'm struggling.These hills I can climb on my caad12 with compact .Would it be possible to change the cassete to 11_32 ?Would I need a new chain? And rear deraileur ? The current cassete is 11-28.Thank you.

    You can change the rear cassette to 11-32 without changing the derailer. You will need a new (longer) chain.

    I have a 36-46 up front with 11-32 on the rear works fine and helps a bit no adjustment just went straight on .
    When i die I just hope the wife doesn't sell my stuff for what I told her I paid for it other wise someone will be getting a mega deal!!!
