    Saint Cassette range

    I know that most information say the saint rd is good up to a 34 tooth cog in the back, but has anyone had success going up to a 36.

    Thanks in advance

    It may require a bit of adjustment. You will need to screw the B tension adjuster all the way in if this is not enough the screw can be turned around so the head end hits the derailer stop. What will happen is the derailer pulley will bounce on the largest cog rather than clear it. This is not really a problem if you keep the speed low. One other solution is to place a 2mm spacer on the derailer fixing bolt so it mover the derailer out 2mm this is a good idea anyway if the derailer fixing bolt interferes with the chain. Using a 36 cog on a 9 or 10 cog setup is actually easier than using a 34 tooth cog on a 7 cog setup and I have done this. 48_tooth_cog | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
