Hi everybody. I'm thinking of getting a new cassette on the back, a 32-11 to help even more with climbing.

Obviously I want to keep things cheap so I was wondering if any of you have experience running a ss derailleur with a 32-11.

50 front 32 rear will obviously not work but that's cross chaining so no worries there.

I'm sure I'd need to increase the chain by a link or two which isn't a big deal since it has about reached the end of its service life anyway.
