A quick up date on my earlier question about using a Sram 11-32 with a Dura Ace 7900 and a compact 50-34 crank. Although I was told it wouldn't work with a Dura Ace 7900 SS, I went ahead and bought the cassette and, to make a long story short, after about 50 miles on the road it works great. It will even shift from the large chain ring to the 32 rear cog. The chain is tight in that configuration so I don't do it on the road.

It sure is nice at 64 to have a bail out gear on long climbs.
Hi Desertrider 119, excellent ... the specs say 33T max total and you have got it handling 37T total which is the GS cage spec (and it works like a dream) :)

I would be careful with the 50 to 32 as that will place a lot of strain on the derailleur hanger and could bend it or even break it.

Enjoy the lower gearing :)
