No -- you need to match the number of speeds on the cassette and the number of speeds of the shifter. The 11 speed shifters are designed to use dyna-sys cable pull (which is different than the 10 speed road cable pull; its the same as 10 speed mountain) as well. I'd recommend picking up either {a 10 speed road or 7-9 speed Shimano rear derailleur and a 10 ...

Check: Freehub body: no play radially? laterally? Try to reproduce it when lightly apply the brake (with barrel adjuster) and hand-pedal while the bike on stand. does it still wobble? Cassette spacing: remove the cassette and see if there is any irregularities in the spacer.

Road typically has a smaller range. A road bike will typically come with a short cage derailleur. Where a mountain will typically come with a medium or long cage derailleur. Yes the mount on the freehub is compatible. It is about the range capacity of the derailleur.

If you want sram cassette (which should be compatible): Sram PG1050 and PG1070 come in a 12-28 configuration matching what you need 12-13-14-15-16-17-19-22-25-28 https://www.sram.com/sram/road/products/sram-pg-1050-cassette https://www.sram.com/sram/road/products/sram-pg-1070-cassette If you want shimano Buy two Shimano 105 ten speed cassettes (well, you ...

In theory yes. In practice there are a couple of issues: Finding the cog. One, expensive, way to get one is to buy a cassette with the size you want and take it apart to get your cog – assuming that you can find one. Finding the cog with the ramps to go to its partners on either side. This is a much smaller issue, the steps are as small as they get and ...

You can't over shift if your rear derailleur is adjusted correctly (the high and low limit screws will prevent it). You will just have a phantom gear – like they say.

One upgrade you could make without attempting to cold set the frame to far would be to use a kit like fyxation sells which works on a 120mm (track spaced) frame and works with bar end shifters. It's a much smaller width, so it would possibly work better than cold setting to 130. I bet you could mount the bar end shifter on some Gevenalle levers if you ...

Cold setting a 114mm to 130mm is significant. Usually the rule of thumb for cold setting is you can go up one step, such as from a 126mm to 130mm or 120mm to 126mm. A three speed freewheel bicycle is extremely rare and I'd personally leave it alone, it's just too valuable to risk destroying the frame.

The number of cogs per cassette will depend on hub compatibility. If you have 8 cogs (8 speed) you also have to make sure what ratio you want, the smallest being 11 up to 32 (largest cog closest to the wheel spoke) there's many ratios you can choose from depending on ride style. If you go anywhere larger than 28, you may need a midsize derailleur ... all ...

SRAM Cassettes are compatible with Shimano Cassettes, but a cassette and a freewheel are different components. You will not be able to use the SRAM Cassette to replace your Shimano Freewheel. You will need to replace your freewheel with a freewheel. The difference between a cassette and a freewheel is that a cassette is just a bunch of cogs that slides ...

My tiagra on giant defy 2014 handled the change from 30T to 32T maximum without too much fettling needed. It depends of derailleur and bike angle where they meet too, you need to adjust B screw so that the top wheel of the derailleur is moved 'back' from the cog It's one of the most popular questions on bike forums, and i looked at a lot. In the end you ...

You'll need a new chain, since the chain will be slightly longer. You need to see what the ratings of your rear derailleur are. It has to have enough capacity (i.e. the capacity rating has to be greater than or equal to large chainring - small chainring + large cog - small cog) for your setup. It also has to have appropriate ratings for the largest and ...
