Suntour Derailer spec's

I think I saw a paper giving all the spec's of all the Suntour derailers on a thread in this forum but can't find it. I would like to know if a cyclone II rear derailer will handle a 32t rear cog. I have a cyclone II derailer and a 14t to 32t Schwinn wheel set and want to use it on a "75 Raleigh Mixte. Thanks

There are long cage and short cage Cyclones, I believe. A long cage should work for sure, but a short cage may be "stretched". Of course you can always change the cages!

A long cage MkII will work, the shorter cage will not.

I've got a Cyclone II GT, it's a long cage derailleur and it will handle a 32t large cog. I was under the impression that the only difference between the standard Cyclone II and the Cyclone II GT is that the GT has a longer cage, therefore giving it more chain wrap capacity which is a different issue than max. cog capacity. The only place it says "GT" on my derailleur is on the cage itself, where it's stamped "GT." FWIW, I believe the chain wrap capacity of the GT model is 34t-
