How does the manager of the spreadsheet account for old listings where the users aren't responding. I can see it getting out of hand because no one will come back to update the spreadsheet, ever.

Wow that's a low range. 30 - 46?? Are you climbing Angliru with 100lbs of gear?

As to your question I think you could install either cassette with a roadlink adapter to extend the RD's capacity.

Hmm, I didn't say it was bad. My point was that there is a large gap between 10-33 and 10-50. Not everyone needs or wants a 50t in their cassette. I'd love to have a 44 x 10-46 setup.
