- shimano rear mech knowledge?
a number of my bikes are happily running 9-spd, however a stick rear mech interface has caused some issues.
Can Shimano 10 Spd Shadow+ Rear MEchs (the ones with the clutchy thingy ma bob) me used with 9spd shifters?Posted 3 years ago
In theory the mechanical leverage of the 9spd shifter should allow it
but Shimano may have altered something to prevent this?? any one tried it before I hit the buy button.robdeanhoveMember
So does that mean there is no Shimano 9s compatible clutch-type rear mech out there?
I have a shimano 9s shifter, a perfectly useable cassette, a spare cassette and a couple of spare chains, so I want to keep everything 9s, with my Shimano shifter. However, I need a new mech. Is there no clutch solution out there that allows me to keep my 9s cassette and shimano 9s shifter? 🙁Posted 3 years agorobdeanhoveMember
Ah-ha! There is a solution here (luckily I can speak some German), for €15 someone in Germany modifying 10s mechs to 9s actuation:
Of course, this is also someone doing it in Germany…. No-one doing this, or offering any sort of adapter in the UK? I can’t find one.Posted 3 years ago
