|I have an old 8sp Ultegra Rear Derailleur on my "beater" and want to put a larger cassette on it so I can pull the kids trailer etc. Anyone know what largest cog and max capcity it can handle ?
I can';t find any info on old Shimano stuff on their web site.

|I believe it's 27, but I installed a 30t cog and with adjustments everything worked fine.|
|Rated for 27(??), but I know it works with 28||Retro|

|Seems to me it's rated for 27, but mine shifts with a 28, and it looks like it might handle a little more.|
