    I have DA 7800 with RD 7700
    It runs with a CS-6700 12-30 but is loud in 30. Shifts into it just fine
    Also loud with my usual 12-27 cassette in 27. I think the RD is rated for 25 max!

    Yes keep at it. If you are doing 12 miles with 2500 feet that is over 200 ft/mile, which is excellent training and will make you strong. You live near Santa Barbara?

    SRAM's 12-28 cassette has a 16t cog which is nice. I got a force level SRAM and it was a tiny bit more noisy and less smooth than my shim 105 12-27 cassette.

    Speed depends a lot on elevation gain. For a flat ride over 20 is good. Hilly over 18.

    This week I did 45 miles with 2700 feet elevation at 19.1mph average. Fairly hilly at 60 ft/mile with a...

    If you have 10 speed there are very good 12-30/32 cassettes. You lose the 16t cog to get the extra low gear.

    A 53/39 with a 32 in back gets you about the range of a triple, as would a 52/36 with a...

    I've been looking on CL for a used steel cross or touring bike for commuting.

    Finally found something in my size and price range...but the top tube is dented. The main tubes are 631.

    customizing shimano 11 speed cassette?

    I am running 10 speed 7800, but now that 5800 is out I am thinking of saving for that.
    I run 53/39 cranks with a 12-27 or 12-30, depending on the elevation.

    Shimano makes an 11-32 cassette, which...
