What's the exact cable pull and indexing of

  • Shimano Alfine SG-S700
  • SRAM G8/9
  • Shimano ROAD RD-5800
  • SRAM Force Rear dérailleur
  • other...

The idea is to use ST-RS505 brifter with an IGH. Not entirely impossible as it seems.

  • The blog article that you reference is specific to external, derailleur gears. IGHs are engineered to use specific pull ratios that correspond only with IGH shifters. – JonR Apr 14 '16 at 7:55
  • @JonR The title is explicitly asking for specific values. Not opinions. There is another fact sheet suggesting otherwise. I haven't had the time to integrate the details, yet. – lusitania Apr 14 '16 at 12:04

Whatever you may read this CAN'T work properly simply because the gaps between each of the shifts are different on the Shimano Alfine SG-S700, there are THREE different gaps. The only shifters not made by Shimano to operate this hub properly are:

Jtek 11 Speed Bar End Shifter


11 Speed Microshift Inter11 STI Levers
