Is it possible to run a PG-1050 11-32T or 12-32T with a Shimano FC-6703 triple crank?
Looking at those low to mid twenties percent gradient ramps on a hill I want to climb on my Ultegra spec road bike. Bike currently has a FC-6703 triple crankset (52/39/30), a RD-6700 GS (long cage) rear derailleur, and 11-28T CS-6700 cluster.
Can I use a SRAM PG-1050 11-32T or 12-32T cluster with the triple crank and long cage derailleur?
Shimano specs say not, but with the long cage, maybe somebody here has been able to get it to work. I would think so because the short cage derailleur also says you can run an 11-28T; surely the long cage will allow more.
