    Cassette Ratio

    I am going for a 26/36 with Bashguard set up on my Foes Fly. What would the reccomended cassette Ratio be for Rings this size. I am currently running a 22/32 setup with a 11-32 Ratio.
    I will also br running a MediumCage XO Rear mech.

    You really mean ratio? As in resulting gear ratios for your bike? Or just the range of the cogs in the rear cassette? Have you printed out the gear ratios produced by your new chainrings with your old cassette as well as those produced by your old chainring/cassette? (there's a lot of good online calculators you can use) There's not a heck of a lot of difference between an 11-32 and a 11-34 or even a 12-28 for that matter except in the lowest gears; you could go for a roadie style cassette for closer ratios between shifts. Why not just use your current cassette until you put some miles in on the new chainring sizes? Hard to recommend what you should use in any case, they're your legs on your terrain (whatever that is).
