OP wants 34T. That may be pushing it a bit for a 34T rear sprocket, although there may be options to increase the hanger length.

(34-14) + (50-34) = 20+16 = 36, so the derailleur capacity should be OK.

Front derailleurs are often pretty forgiving of changing chainring sizes. Capacity is a bit of a difference and will depend on the seat tube angle.
Thanks, Clifford. Do you know of any good links where I can learn about "capacity" and what it means?
