I've run 11-32 with a 5800 SS (short cage); depending on your setup, there's a good shot that a 5800 GS (medium cage) will work with up to 36. It's only spec'd for up to 32, but the SS is only supposed to take a maximum 28. Apparently, Shimano's specs are known to be conservative.

Those of you whom have run 36 max with 5800 GS or similar, what cassette do you use? I've been told that there's an SRAM cassette that will work (though I cannot remember what it is).
