Replace sprocket wheel in Dura-Ace cassette: 32 cogs(3 posts)

Replace sprocket wheel in Dura-Ace cassette: 32 cogsDerrick VL

I have the Shimano Dura-Ace (triple) cassette 12-27, I replaced a sprocket wheel and have now 12-29. I read in 'Fiets' it is possible to replace another sprocket wheel to obtain 12-32.

Anyone expierence with a 32 sprocket wheel? Who's producing these 32 wheels?

Concering your rear derailleur: Does it have the capacity for a 32-tooth cog, and secondly, will there be interference with the jockey wheel? If it's a D/A derailleur, I'd bet it won't work.

If you are using a road version rear deraileur, you have exceded the maximum capacity for it (which is 27 teeth). Ideally, you should be using a mountain version, which is compatible with road, such as the XTR RD-M952-GS (XTR 207g, DA 212g). If you go to a 32, you will need to replace more than just the largest sprocket since there will be too large a jump from the previous cog. To make this easier, get yourself an XTR 12-34t cogset CS-M953 (XTR 262g, DA 160g).
