- 10sp cassette on 9sp hub – what spacer?
It should work without one, but mine didn’t:
I used the spacer in the link to resolve my issue.Posted 9 months ago
I’m upgrading my old 9sp road bike to 10 which I think means I need to put a spacer behind the casette. Do shimano cassettes come with the spacer? And if not, what size do I need?
Wheels are ancient bontrager race-lite currently on 9sp dura ace and I’m moveing to 10sp 105Posted 9 months agoahwilesSubscriber
isn’t there a difference between roadie 10spd, and mtb 10spd?
ie. roadie 10 cassettes are narrower than mtb 10 cassettes – which are the same width as 9spd.
the roadie10 cassettes are available in a size that an mtb may well consider ‘adequate’ – so we’ll buy them, only to find they’re not *quite* right… (i may or may not have found this out the hard way)
(i think is right, it certainly explains a few things…)
anyway, i’m not sure 10spd really counts as an upgrade for a road bike. it was sort of a short-lived dead end. imho, upgrade properly, to 11spd 105, or just get new(ish) Sora, which is cheap, back-dateable, and really really really good.Posted 9 months ago
