    2016 Cervelo C5 change to a 34T


     I  have a 2016 C5 which came stock with the Dura-ace 9000 DI2. I changed the rear derailleur to  Ultegra DI2 RD-R8050-GS Long cage and the sprocket to Cs-hg800-11 which is Ultegra 11-34T. I am having trouble chaining it correctly. Does this combination on a C5 work?

    I would think that combo should work. Maybe you need a chain with an extra link in it for the larger gear?

    Should work with the long cage but as MidTNBrad suggested, I think the chain needs to be longer.
