    11-32 rear cluster/cassette and a rear derailleur for Campagnolo and Shimano ?

    greetings all

    I ride compact Ultegra with 50-34 front and 11-28 rear cluster.

    My riding buddy prefers to keep his standard 53-39 front rings but he wants the low climbing gear too.
    On SRAM there is 11-32 rear cluster which with a 53-39 front gives the same ratio on low 39-32 gear as my compact does on 34-28.

    The problem is - my buddy does NOT have SRAM. He has two bikes with standard 53-39 front rings. One is Campagnolo Centaur and one is Shimano Ultegra.

    My question is: is there a 11-32 rear cluster/cassette and an accommodating rear derailleur solution for Campagnolo or Shimano in year 2013 ? Some sort of medium-cage rear derailleur perhaps?

    thanks!

    You would have to dig deeper for derailleur information, but Campagnolo has a 12-30 cassette in 10sp Centaur and the biggest Campagnolo-compatible Miche is 29.

    For the Shimano, you can use the SRAM cassette.

    With the rear derailleur, there is the 6700-A version that accomodates a 30T, which some have adjusted for a 32T. Otherwise, you would have to use a 9-speed mountain bike rear derailleur a XT-level (which would approximate an Ultegra level)

    and

    IRD make quite a range of cassettes, including 11-32 Campagnolo.

    When touring I switch my Dura Ace rear der with 12x25 to a Shimano mt bike 10 spd cluster 11X34 & a Shimano my bike rear der. Works perfectly.
