What issues will I encounter if I switch from a wheelset with a 11-32 cassette to a wheelset with a Capreo 9-26 cassette? Is it just a matter of a derailer adjustment? Or will chain length need to be adjusted?
I'm thinking about a road wheelset for my hardtail that uses the capreo and a mountain set that uses the 11-32. I foresee making the switch maybe 1 or 2 times a month. I plan to get a light wheelset for the road since my hardtail is pretty light at about 22 pounds with mountain wheels and tires. So if the capreo swap is easy I can raise the gearing for the road at the same time.
Another option is to swap to 700 cc rim for the roadset but I have v-brakes meaning I'd need to move them each time I switch. Do the adaptors for this 700-26 brake swap work as well as advertised?
