7970 Di2 + 11-32 cassette?

Postby pjb » Fri Feb 28, 2014 11:04 am

Is there any simple way of using an 11-32 cassette on a 7970 Di2 system?

*7970. No such thing as 7870.

And no, probably not.

How low a gear do you need? Are you already running a compact chainset?

Yeah sorry, I meant 7970.
I need it for a "100%" climb on my route, and don't say change the route, bike etc. - ok, I'll change both.

I was looking into this & apparently several people have made a 32 fit (depending upon hanger & bike geo apparently).

I'm trying a 30 and hunting down a 33 ring for the front. But then I'm going to be climbing Alpe D'Huez 6 times in a row so i need some contingency for the latter climbs.
