- Will I die? [Shimano road groupset mix and match query]
I don’t know the answer to any of your questions, but these may help…Posted 4 years agomboySubscriber
If you want a 10spd cassette just for a turbo, I have one you can have for £10+postage. It’s a 12-27 105 cassette, the top 3-4 cogs are quite worn but that won’t be of any consequence on a turbo, as the smaller 5-6 cogs are all in good condition and this is where you will be on the turbo anyway.
You may find it cheaper/better/easier in the long run just to buy a cheap 10spd group set off the likes of merlin than go down the route you describe, that said, I can’t see any reason why what you describe shouldn’t work.Posted 4 years agojfletchMember
The Sora 9 speed STI levers on my road bike are borked but the rest of the kit is fine. So I have a plan.
Buy some new 10 spd 105 STIs, a 10 speed cassette and chain. My research tells me this is fine, the 9 speed tiagra rear mech has the same cable pull ratio as the 10 speed so it will work OK. Won’t it?
I can’t see any reason the 105 Double STI won’t work with my Sora compact front mech.
So my issue is with the spare back wheel I use on the turbo trainer. It has a 9 speed cassette. I don’t want to buy another 10 speed cassette just for the turbo. What will happen if I run the 10 spd set up with the 9 speed cassette? Obviously it won’t shift properly but thats not really an issue on the turbo. Will any other mishaps befall me or my bike?Posted 4 years ago
