Just bought a new Ultegra short cage rear derailleur. Wondering which cassette can i run? I have a 50/34 compact crankset.

Most of my riding is in VA beach/Hampton Roads area, which are generally pretty flat. Some times I take it up to North Carolina, which tends to be a bit hilly.

Thanks

I'm also running a compact crank and for most of my riding around here I use a 11-23 Ultegra cassette. I do have a 12-25 installed on my second set of wheels with 25mm tires I run every now and then.

You can get a couple different ones and just change them out as needed if you have one set of wheels..

Also, for cassettes on the cheap, check out the brand Miche. I have bought two of their cassettes for when I wanted one for my roller wheels and one with a lower gear before I did the Ride of the Immortals, but I didn't want to pay Campy prices.

This is the same set up I have on my Synapse. Perfect compact set up IMO. I have never run out of gearing options going up or down hills.
