I have some very hilly riding coming up and was wondering if the 12-30t cassette will work with Ultegra Di2? I think I read somewhere that the maximum was 28 teeth but is that Shimano being conservative?

Thanks

I've used the Ultegra Di2 rear derailleur with a 12-32 before, with zero issues...

I've also setup Ultegra Di2 with an 11-32 cassette without an issue. It depends on the precise geometry of your dropout and the chain length, but with a 30-tooth cog it will probably work fine on most bikes, and on some you'll get away with a 32. Also remember that you can switch the inner ring on a compact for a 33-tooth (not available from Shimano, but is available from Stronglight or TA).

Thanks for the replies. I have one of these:

I noticed that the '13 plain Ultegra model has the 12-30t cassette:

I don't believe the frames have changed from the '12 to '13 model. Presumably that will work then?

I have Di2 11-28 can you tell me what i need to do and components to get to convert it to 11-32 alternatively 11-30 if simple and less expensive.

thank you

I got Ultegra Di2 and had a 11-28 at first but switched to a 11-32 cassette with no problems.
No need to change any components, just adjust the B-screw and it'll work fine.
