    changing cassette from 11-32 to 11-34

    i need to replace my cassette. my old one was a 11-32 tooth. ive found a almost new one on ebay for a really good price but its 11-34 tooth, will i be able to use the new one on my bike? i assume ill have to adjust the derailleurs but is there any problem going from 32 to 34?

    What kind of derailleur do you have?

    If it's the same number of speeds you probably won't have a problem, but you need to know the model to be sure.

    Common swap. All that will happen is you will be able to climb steeper stuff with those extra teeth. That ain't a bad thing

    You might need a new chain, if the old one is worn...old chains often don't get along with new cassettes.

    You might also need a longer chain, to protect you in case you shift into the large/large combination.
