Max Cog Teeth... with SRAM derailler?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

SRAM's specs say 27. From experience with other brands, it's likely you can push that a bit, perhaps as much as 30.

given my and others recent troubles with sram, I would not be pushing any upper limits of what they say.
