SRAM Force RD - Will it take an 11-34 cassette

Does anyone know how big a cassette one can use on an SRAM Force standard cage rear deraillieur?

SRAm says ono, but I've been told it will actually take an 11-34.

34! Ha!

The standard Force rear der will take up to a 28. The Wifli version (designed to accept larger/lower cassette) will accept a 32.

Some bikes have really long derailleur hangers. Those are the ones that let you push the size of the largest cog. They are also the ones that tend to have the sloppiest rear shifting because of greater distance between the jockey pulley and the cog, and more tendency of that hanger to flex under load.
