The Ultegra set up works with that big 32? tooth cog?
I want to know the answer to this question too!

-You can use (mostly) short-cage road RD with 11-32T cassette.
I have experimented with even 11-34T one.. it worked well!
Shifting becomes sluggish when you move beyond ~28T range, but you won't use 32T very often anyway.
More option is always better I think.
-You can use short cage RD with triple cranks.
With this setting you cannot use some (usually 2 or 3) extreme gear combinations such as 53-27T, and you should avoid cross-chaining anyway.
I use short cage derailleurs on some of my folders for most of the same reasons.. on the Birdy however, a short cage won't take up enough chain when folding, so the chain will be constantly coming off unless you are vigilent during folding.. and even then, the chain will be dragging the ground when folded...maybe a small price for the good look however...
