- Going up to 11
Just before I do, does all this work together?
And I take it the band on shifter is just one that is standalone as opposed to the ispec stuff(I want stand alone)
Just checking before I click buy, so any thoughts appreciated, I’m sure it will But just double checking.Posted 3 months agomalv173Member
Pretty much the same as I have. I went for a sun race cassette. The band on is the stand alone version, and the shifter comes with a cable plus outer. Or the mech does. Oh, and the mech uses 2mm Allen key bolts instead of the jis screws of previous incarnations of shimano mechs. Adjusting is a joy!Posted 3 months agovincienupSubscriber
That’s all going to work fine, but there are better options – leaving ‘which big S’ partisanship out altogether.
Fundamental question; have you gamed your real world gear usage on a gear calculator or are you just buying the biggest Shimano cassette and hoping? 1×11 is unforgiving of getting the ratios wrong. You should also make sure that whatever chainring you plan to use will actually fit your bike. If you’re going much bigger than 36 (or an oval 34) then you may be in trouble – and trying to make a too-many-low-gears-not-enough-top cassette work this is a real possibility.Posted 3 months ago
Cheers all aye all should be fine. Front is narrow wide on there anyhow that should take 11.
Shouldn’t be a great deal of difference for me, running 36 and 1×9 11×34 the now. So the idea is just to have the 2 lower gears for silly steep stuff! So all should be fine.
I did forget cables tbh! Hopefully they do come with them! 😆 but I can grab them easy enough.
Just went ahead and purchased anyhow. Should be here tomorrow. 🙂Posted 3 months ago
