I currently have a 9 speed cassette on my Lemond Revolution trainer. I just purchased new bike which is 11 speed and want to use it on my trainer. Is there a way I can do this? I have looked everywhere for an eleven speed upgrade kit from Lemond, but they no longer make them.

  • Its just a funny-shaped wheel, as far as the bike is concerned. What's stopping you fitting an 11 speed cassette to this - the freehub body should be the same size, and the chainrings are closer together. Your other option is to stick the 9 speed bike in the trainer permanently. – Criggie Sep 25 '16 at 22:51

    @Criggie, Shimano & SRAM road 11 speed uses a wider freehub body. Mountain's the same though. – alex Sep 26 '16 at 4:09

The Lemond manual might answer this question with an odd footnote on page 19, which states "11-speed components will fit, but may not allow full use of the cassette." Assuming you own the same model, that is. http://www.lemondfitness.com/files/fetch/revolution/300223-RevolutionOM-RevB.pdf"

If anyone is still wondering about this, I recently picked up a Lemond Revolution, with the 10speed free hub. What I did to make it compatible with my 11 speed grippe is: on my 11-28 cassette, remove the 12 tooth cog, and add a spacer on the inside before the 28tooth, and bam. Shifts perfectly, no limit screw adjusting or anything.

Get a Campy freehub.

Either you're running Campy already and there's nothing to worry about, or you're SRAM/Shimano and Lennard Zinn says that'll work just fine too.
