I run etap 11 spd and zonda wheels on my road bike and currently have a 11-26 cassette that is on its 6th and probably last chain.
I do not see the use of a 11-28 as they take the 16 tooth cog to make way for the 11 cog (resulting in a big jump from 15 to 17). I understand some riders prefer having a 11 speed cog as it affects the chain line. Fine. I am not a sprinter and do not need a 11 cog. I was thinking of swapping hub body and getting a Campagnolo 11 speed 12-29 so i can have all my gears plus a nice bail out for horribly hilly places.
Question: what is the maximum cog that a regular (short case i think) etap rear derailleur can take?
