Iíve heard of folks even using a 24 small ring, but havenít tried it myself. I use the 26/39/50 and it works fine even though I think itís technically out of spec for the derailleur.
Its been a while, since tiagra went to 10 speed, but at that time, they changed the bcd of the crank, and 30 became the smallest granny you could put on.
I'm fairly positive of this, but check out out.
my fsa 10 yr old 50 39 30 can take a 26, but I'm fairly sure not a 24

For riding with a 39 or 40 mid ring loaded, I just find them too high.Have ridden both loaded and why I see a 36 as a better choice.
