Either road bike cassettes, or mtb cassettes if you know that they are compatible.

Thanks !

the max shimano claims is 27 teeth.. i have heard of peoples runing up to 30 teeth.. im running 28 myself.. but with an old exage rear derailleur... i could easily go for lower gears (more teeth) .. use that for starters..

Just spoke to LBS about this. I wanted to go to 30. He said 30 is not compatible and recommended 13/26, which he had available.
