I asked a mechanic the other day the exact same question as I'd seen a couple of videos of people doing it and he thought you could go to 34t fairly easily as Shimano's nimbers were relatively conservative and "could" go to 36t but he felt that would eventually lead to breakages as it'd put it under quite a bit of pressure.

Flip side I was looking at the Specialized Seq Elite .... whether it's because of the specific aftermarket sunrace cassette but it's 36t .... the bike in my opinion for my uses offered the perfect gearing
