on my new surly cross check i have installed the following:
- 10 gear Dura Ace Barendshifters (7900),
- 26-36-48 crankset,
- xt front derailleur,
- 10 gear xt shadow rear derailleur
- 11-32 casette.
while shifting the front derailleur works fine, the rear derailleur does not shift all 10 gears. i have read about the incompatibility issues of road and mtb components and have come across the following hack:
This is a pretty popular hack. If you’re using 10-speed triple road shifters (Tiagra, 105, Ultegra), you can hook them up to a 9-speed MTB derailluer, a 10-speed MTB cassette and a 10-speed chain. As the 9-speed MTB derailleur pulls in the same way as a 10-speed road, you are essentially just increasing the derailleur cage length to increase the overall capacity. Keep in mind the 10-speed shifters will ONLY work with 10-speed road triple front derailleurs. Crankset: 50-39-30t Cassette: 11-36t Setup Capacity: 45t Smallest Gear w/ 700×38 Tyres: 23 Gear Inches
would this work with my setup (when i exchange the rear derailleur)? the dura ace shifters are not mentioned and i have different crankset and cassette setup.
