Given that the cassette is tied to the axle, if the alignment is changing, you have a few possible causes: Freewheel is worn out and has a significant wobble The pivot where the chainstay and frame connect is worn and loose Axle itself is loose, either through the hub, or at the dropouts When applying pressure to the pedal with the brake on, it will ...

Most likely yes, the M772 will work. As you have already calculated, the capacity is within spec, and the maximum sprocket size is out of range by just 2 teeth. In my experience this is very likely to work, so long as the rear dropout on your frame is not especially near to the axle, and so long as you tighten the "B screw" more than normal with a smaller ...

I can see two issues- one being you can't expect the detents of your 10spd shifter to correspond to 11 positions- unless you decide you only need 10 of them, maybe. The other issue is trying to use crossed gears, max forward to max rear, and especially min forward to min rear having the chain climb the pins on the larger gears.

This would be completely fine. You only really have to worry when going to a much wider range. Smaller road derailleurs cannot deal well with big differences between the largest and smallest gear, but they can all handle a 15 tooth difference. Things only start to get compatible once you move beyond 11-28. Shimano/SRAM are compatible for 8-9-10 speed ...

Your cassette is worn and needs replacing too. I bet the old chain was well past replacement time, and it wore into the cassette. Now you've changed the chain, it no-longer makes good contact with all the teeth at once. Stop riding immediately - fit a replacement cassette ASAP else you'll be up for another new chain. Do use the search functions of this ...

It is likely that your cassette is worn. A new chain on a worn cassette will skip, because of the mismatch of the shape of the teeth on the cassette with the chain's spacing (which is shorter than what the cassette expects due to wear). You can visually inspect your cassette for wear by either looking for gaps in how the chain meshes with the cassette, ...

I can say from experience this does not work well at all. Although as mentioned above the chain does run through the shifting is dreadful. I tried it with a 10 speed shifter but gears would always have a spot where they would jump. Just get a 10 speed rear derailleur. You will be glad you did.

Will it work? Probably. The range of movement of the mech wont be an issue and the chain will run through it, so I cant see why it wouldnt work. This article is quite helpful: http://velonews.competitor.com/2015/03/bikes-and-tech/technical-faq/technical-faq-10-11-speed-drivetrain-component-compatibility_362722 Shimano will tell you 11spd components wont ...

Here's another gear-inch calculator that may be easier to use: http://cycleseven.org/bicycle-gear-inch-calculator Basically, the 52/36 will allow 5% higher top-speed before spinning-out compared to the 50/34. (Many say that your aero-tuck and other factors are more important at those speeds anyway.) But on the hills, you'll find the 36 to be harder to ...
