    Miche 11-speed 14-32????????????????

    I'm gettin' kinda old, 65 this June, and the 11-32 Shimano cassette on my 2017 Cannodale Synapse is not that appropriate for my needs. I'll never be pushing a 50-11 or even a 50-12 for that matter. A 14-32 would better suit my needs.

    To the best of my knowledge, the only custom manufacturer of cassettes that are Shimano 105 compatible is Miche, which makes a 14-15, intermediate cogs, and a 32t large sprocket. However, I cannot seem to find a US vendor that offers this kind of custom build, and many European sites do not have this setup either. Miche also does not sell direct to the public.

    Any suggestions for the old guy?

    Thanks for any input.

    If looking to keep the same breadth of overall gear inches however desire overall shorter gearing and don't need a 50t front chainring...and as a bonus, want shorter climbing gears, change your crankset to something more strength appropriate in front.

    ^^Yeps!

    I just got finished a new build and using a White Industries 46/30 and 11-32 in the back. Incredibly effective combination...for me at least. ;)

    For 700x40 class tires it is a great combo IME. I ran the IRD Defiant sq taper 46/30 for a bit...then upgraded to the FSA SLK bb386evo 46/30.

    Yep, I've bought a heap of stuff through them.
    I believe they are now owned by Chain Reaction/Wiggle, haven't dealt with them since that change.
