- Shimano Zee on AM bikes
I’ve just run one for 2 weeks in the alps on my covert (1×10) – I’m still alive, and so is it 🙂
No idea about relative weights, but the clutch is good, as is the mega short cage.
Make sure you buy the right size for your cassette, they’re not adjustable like saint.

how does a brand new product hold up? you might want to wait a little longer to get a better idea

I put some 10 speed zee stuff on me mates meta (11-36 cassette, shifter, mech) seems as well made as the 9 speed SLX stuff on my bike, although the shifter doesn’t seem as well sealed to the elements. It has multi release on the downshift. Shifting is crisp enough, I thought there would be more resistance with the clutch on than there was. Certainly seems much quieter at the back, the clutch stuff does seem to work as advertised.Posted 5 years agoradoggairMember
plenty reasons shaley
chain length requirement
gear range (1x 10 = not enough, 2x 10 = too much)
being just some of them
just plainly naming big words. I’ve used 7, 8, 9 and now on 10speed. Reliability is exactly the same, weight is lighter (new xtr), durability has been pretty good apart from front brake which needed replacing and xtr pedals which came off axle. Gear range is absolutely fine. Compard to 3×9 then its practically the same but less. Maintenance is clean after ride, oil and go so same as other stuff. Chain length requirement = really. stupid point IMO and price, yeah its a little steeper but so is the rest of the world.
And finally yes, i will go to 1×11 when the time comesPosted 5 years ago
