Can I run a 10 speed cassette on an 11 speed wheel, but also keep running 10 speed on a 10 speed wheel?

Can you use a 10 speed cassette with 11 speed?

It will shift fine with a Shimano or SRAM 11-speed system. And in case any of you were wondering, if you have a 10-speed Shimano or SRAM system and buy a wheelset now, you can still run 10-speed cogs on that wheel. To put a 10-speed cogset on an 11-speed freehub, you just put a spacer behind the largest cog.

Are Shimano 10 and 11 speed compatibility?

Shimano’s mechanical 10- and 11-speed road shifters are not compatible with its 10- and 11-speed MTB derailleurs.

How do you install a 10 speed cassette on a 11 speed hub?

Quote from video: Longer than your regular 10 speed hub and that is why you need this little 1.85 millimeter spacer so all you have to do is drop this spacer a light into one of the like wider groove right here.

Do I need spacer for 10 speed cassette on 11 speed hub?

Use spacers on the 11 speed wheel to put a 10 speed cassette on. See your hub manufacturer’s page for details, but its normally a 1.8(5) mm spacer (which comes with the hub, but you can buy separately) and a 1mm spacer (sometimes; which you’ll get with the cassette).

Do I need a spacer for 10 speed cassette?

Most Shimano 10-speed cassettes road cassettes come with a 1mm spacer. It is intended to and should be installed whenever it can fit on the freehub body. Mountain cassettes never include or use this spacer.

Are 10 and 11 speed cassettes the same width?

11 speeds. Sprocket width is the same as for 10 speeds, so 10 speed sprockets can be used, provided that 11 speed spacers are used. Sprockets are 1.6 mm thick, spaced at 3.74 mm (road), or 3.9 mm (MTB).

Will a 10 speed chain work on a 11-speed chainring?

You can certainly use a Shimano 10-speed double crank and chainrings with Shimano 11-speed chain, derailleurs, shifters and cassette, however.

Will a 12 speed cassette fit on a 11-speed hub?

The 12-speed cassette is designed to be backwards compatible with the existing 11-speed road freehub, while the 12 speed-specific freehub (available on Dura Ace hubs currently) can’t be used with the 11-speed parts. Sram HG-style cassettes are largely the same spacing as Shimano, with the 10 speed exception.

Can you mix Shimano groupsets?

It is possible to mix and match as long as you get components from the same generation. For example: 9000 Dura Ace, 6800 Ultegra, and 5800 105 are all cross compatible. Each have 11-speeds in the rear, use the same cable pull per shift and use the same front derailleur design.

Can I put a bigger cassette on my bike?

Yes, almost any bike is compatible with bigger cassettes, bike drivetrain is groupset of components that works in perfect harmony, any miss reconfiguring can break the perfect functionality of the system, parts that need to be changed and reconfigured when putting bigger cassette which is long-chain, wide cage

Can you fit a 9 speed cassette on a 11 speed hub?

Condensed Answer: A 9-speed SRAM or Shimano cassette can be installed on an 11-speed MTB SRAM or Shimano hub right away. A 9-speed SRAM or Shimano cassette will require a 1.85mm spacer to be mounted securely on an 11-speed Shimano or SRAM road hub.

Is there a 10 speed freewheel?

Do 11 speed cassettes need spacers?

What’s the difference between 10 and 11 speed chains?

Registered. The plates on 11s chains are thinner compared to the 10s, but the all spacing dimensions and rollers are the identical. That’s why it’s quieter and smoother. No plates to rub agains the cogs.

How do I know if my bike is 10 or 11 speed?

Multiply the front gear number by the rear gear number to get the number of speeds. For example, if you have two front gears and five back gears, you have a 10-speed bike. If you have one front gear and three back gears, you have a 3-speed bike.

What gear combination is best for going uphill?

Low Gear = Easy = Good for Climbing: The “low” gear on your bike is the smallest chain ring in the front and the largest cog on your cassette (rear gears). In this position, the pedaling will be the easiest and you’ll be able to pedal uphill with the smallest amount of resistance.
