It works well with on a Cervelo with 53/39 and 50/34. You end up with a chain length that is not too loose in the 39-11 or the 34-11 and not too tight in the 53-29 or the 50-29. The 52/36 not so well. You can either cut the chain so that the chain almost touches the bottom of the RD in the 36-11 and fine in the 52-29. Or cut the chain so that 36-11 has some tension but 52-29 is too tight for my taste. I go with the longer chain length. There is less than 1 cm of tension in the 36-11 when the chain is new. And as the chain wears it gets longer and gets closer to the RD. I have not had a problem but I change my chains more frequently than most. If you had a very worn stretched chain in the 52/36 & 11-29, the chain it would slap up against the bottom of the RD while riding in the 36-11. It would hit the bottom of the chain that is in the RD. Probably not a big calamity and this would only happen when you shifted into the 36-11 which is not something that most people would be spending much time in. But that might be why they do not sell an 11-29.
I'm running 52/36 and might want 50/34 for a little euro alpine adventure time in August
I like crossing the chain big to big but never small to small
I'm also fond of a new chain every 3000km, 4000 max.
I like the idea of the 52/36 29/11 it's kinda a killa set up..
Prolly get away with out the full compact cranks if I get a little fitter..
I normally run a 25/11 Cassette and given you need to buy 2 cassettes to make a 29/11 it's prolly not an every day cassette..
Not too worried about the chain slack issues I was wondering more about the shifting. Is it any different from the std cassettes? And do you notice the lack of the 16?
