Derailleur suggestions for a 11-28 casette
Am hoping to run a standard (short cage) road derailleur on my 11-28 casette but not sure it will handle the range, Shimano site lists 27 as a maximum for all of their road models, but not sure if I am reading the specs right

Anyone running a road derailleur on a 11-28?
Posted a similar question in the tech section but might be more appropriate here, given its for a 20" wheeled Dahon.
You'll have no trouble using any road derailer with 28T. Get a short cage. I've run one on a 11-34T cassette; wasn't pretty on 34T but it worked.
Any RD will work fine. There always are some margin in spec.
I used to use dura ace SS RD with 11-32 mtb cassette and it worked well.
Even if you don't trust us, sheldon brown pretty much says the same thing.
I use an 11-28 with my Shimano Ultegra short rail RD. It's been working flawlessly for many months and probably over 1000 miles.
Go for it with confidence!
