Can accommodate a 28 sprocket

PostedJune 22, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
A necessity of age when you want the reassurance of a 28 to go with 39 up front, to avoid ignominy of climbing off, like when on 39 x 25 going up Crowcombe Hill at 80 miles into the Somerset Hill Sportive in May.
Does seem to change more slickly than the 7800 version.

Compact and very lightweight derailleur I have used Shimano for the past 10 years, each time I have tried campag or SRAM they just feel less refined
