I've been riding campy for a few years and much prefer it to shimano I tried DA 9000 last year and didn't like it so went back to campy. But I wanted to try a 11-32 cassete as I live in a really hilly area with a bunch of fun climbs with large sections over 12% grade. So I threw a 11-32 on my powertap wheel (I already had a spare shimano freehub left from the da9000 days) and threw it on the bike. I had ordered a long cage athena derailuere (triple) and was planning on using that too. To my surprise it shifted great perfect actually just as good as my previous 12-29 super record cassette. I didn't even need to change the derailuer. I will say the setup I have with 50/34-11-32 is maxed out and if you had 52/36 or 53/39 I'm sure you would need the triple rear derailuer. Just wanted to confirm that shimano 11 cassettes are perfectly compatible.
Here's a pic of my bike with the 11-32

Edit: if it's for sale, please post in the appropriate forum.

that big-big combination just does not look right.

Yeah it's too big for that combination the picture makes it look worse but I just shifted into it there in the house. I didn't ride in that combo. For perfection you put the triple rear derailuer on it and add a few links to the chain. I have a brand new athena triple I was gonna put on it but I decided to sell the bike as stated above. Just wanted to show that the shifting quality was good with the ultegra cassette just gives more options.

The big-big is just wrong! What does it look like on big-second sprocket?

On small-small it does look like you could add a couple of links.

Yeah it actually shifts into all gears great I rode it but avoided maxing out either low low or high but you could for sure. The athena 11 triple derailuer has the longer cage and was what I was gonna put on this too accomadate this gearing. But mainly I just wanted to show it was possible even in this extreme setup if you threw an 11-28 ultegra cassette you can buy for 70$ at any shop your set to go with and it shifts great.

I started using a Shimano 11-32 on our Athena-equipped triple (52-39-30) tandem. It's worked great. 12-29 wasn't enough, and I had to resort to a 28t inner ring, which caused its own problems.

Yes, I had to change out freewheel body on my DT Swiss 240s Disc rear hub.
