Another Gearing Question(1 post)

Another Gearing Questionkyvdh

I was just reading posts below about someone wanting to change gearing for easier riding, climbing etc. I have just the opposite desire. I have a mountain bike that I want to put a smaller cog on the cassette (13 to 11). My question is that when I look at the specs. on the rear derailler (that doesn't look like the right spelling), it says I can only go to a 13 tooth minimum cog. Is that really true or would the 11 work fine? I have the ShimanoDX group with the hyperglide cassette and chain. Again I may not have all the right words as I am just getting into this but I need more top end speed out of my mountain-into-road bike. Thanks for some great posts here lately.
