Just noticed Andrew's post mentioning STI shifters. Unless your bike has been modified, you don't have those. I'm pretty sure all the 1100's came with good old down tube shifters, indexed for the...

Can you be more specific? We found numbers on the inside of each rear dropout, (different number on each left and right), but as those are cast rather than stamped we assume those are part numbers.

For whatever it's worth, the factory claims a capacity of 35 with the short cage and I'd be at 37 with this 50-34 & 11-32 set-up. Guess I'll just use the mid-cage, I'd hate to mess with the...

Ultegra, Can I change the short cage to long?

Is it possible to change the short cage to the longer one or do I just need to just buy a new derailer?
