I know it won't be road gearing, but i just want to get a bit higher gearing with my current rings. So what would be a good cassette?
Maybe what you are saying is that without changing the chain wheel i would have to go to a smaller than 11 tooth cog? Which i don't think is possible.
Here are my derailleur specs...
