It appears your cassette has a 34T cog and your small ring is 34T.
Are you trying to climb walls?
IF you really need lower gears than what you have, I'd be more concerned if the 24 spoke wheel set would hold up.
If you are putting that much torque to the rear wheel, you would be putting too much slack/stress in the drive side leading spokes. Kind of "unwrapping" them.
