I have an 11-32 utegra 6800 cassette with less than 20 miles on it. I would really rather have something larger than this. I'm looking to trade it for an 11-34 or 11-36 cassette.

Thanks

Wow. I didn't know you could get and run them that big.

Yea. Thought my long cage 6800 could only accommodate 32 max.

Well, the largest Ultegra 11s cog is 11-32, so of course they are going to say that. MY question is, a MTB, 11s cogset, 11-34/36...is that the same spacing..since a road 11s cogset can't go on a MTB FH body. But can accept a 11s MTB cogset...confused.

Who makes a 11-34/36 11s cogset?

I'm pretty sure its the same spacing between road and mtn, but haven't played with it yet to make sure.

They cantilever the last cog out over the hub flange on the bike cassettes to get em to fit the same FH body as the 10sp cassettes. If you look at the backside of the cassette, its got some pretty good dish going on.

SRAM make an 11-36 11 speed cassette.

In the link below, Ultegra Di2 mid cage works with an even bigger 11-40 cassette, courtesy of a helpful little gadget.

Nothing to trade as I like having this option.

However to answer a couple of ?s in this thread, this works together:
6870 Di2, GS rear der, Shimano 11-speed 34/46 rings (shifted good enough for this purpose), SRAM 11-36 cassette. B-screw most of the way in. The rides I used this pairing for allowed me to spend most of my time on the 46t. Worked well and didn't need to use a RoadLink hanger drop

I guess I should have clarified. I'm looking for a SRAM cassette since they're the only one producing this range in 11 speed. I'm using a SRAM mountain derailleur which handles a 34/36 fine. Pretty standard 1X set up these days

Isn't it awesome breaking the manufacturer's rules :)

I would buy that cassette of you if you decide to sell instead of trade

IRD makes more cassettes than Shimano and they do some with 34 and 36 teeth IIRC. I have no idea how they work, but I'm tempted for a 12-34 or something like that.
