105 Longcage + MTB Cassette?
Long story short,I'm looking to re-gear my Element cross bike for the street. I've got a new 11-34 SRAM cassette laying around and I'm considering swapping it for the stock 12-26. Rear spacing is fine and they're both 9sp. I can't find any info about the 9sp 105 derailleurs on Shimano's site. I know the short cage one's won't handle this cassette,but I think this one might. I measured the distance between the pulley spindles and it came to about 84mm. I also measured the one on my Coda which has a Deore XT and an 11-32 cassette,and it came to about 86mm. Think the 11-34 will work with the 105? Thanks in advance.
