Asked by: Eric Schmidt

Can Shimano Tourney handle 8 speed?

Available in black and silver, the SHIMANO TOURNEY TX800 derailleur is compatible with 8-speed SIS Index Shifting.

Will a 7 speed front derailleur work with 9 speed?

Yes. A front derailleur marketed as for a 9 speed system will work normally with your 7 speed set up.

How do you shift gears on a Shimano Tourney?

Quote from video: And then to shift to the low gears again just while you're pedaling smoothly you will give this a click and a first half of click is to compensate for cross-chaining.

Is Shimano Tourney freewheel?

The SHIMANO TOURNEY TZ 7-speed freewheel features a MEGARANGE 14-28T and 14-34T range.

How many teeth can Alivio handle?

It can work with up to a 36-tooth rear cassette sprocket and down to an 11-tooth smallest ring.

How do you adjust a Shimano Tourney front derailleur?

Quote from video: Turn it clockwise now it helps to kind of pull that derailleur out too. So that's not up against the stop and that makes the screw a little bit easier to turn.

Can I put a 9 speed cassette on a 7 speed hub?

7-speed hubs won’t normally accept 8-, 9- or 10 speed cassettes without modification. Click here for details. 7-speed cassettes fit fine on 8- and 9-speed (and most 10-speed) hubs if you put a 4.5 mm spacer onto the body before the cassette. Click here for details.

Can I use an 8 speed derailleur on a 9 speed cassette?

Yes, your XTR derailleur will work with 9 speed shifter and cassette. 8 and 9 speed Shimano RD’s are for all practical purposes interchangeable.

Can you convert a 9 speed cassette to 8 speed?

A 9-speed shifter cannot function properly with an 8-speed cassette because 8 and 9-speed cassettes have different spacing. The 9-speed cassette has the cogs closer to each other because one extra gear is fitted within the same space. In consequence, the cassette spacing is slightly narrower.

Does Shimano Tourney have a clutch?

It doesn’t get a clutch though, it’s mostly made of steel, and it’ll only work with a cassette with a maximum of 45t.

What is FD in bike?

Front derailleurs (FD in the remainder of the text) are used on bicycles with external gearing and (usually) multiple sprockets at the rear hub. They work on a simple, brute force principle: moving the chain sideways, until it slips off a sprocket onto the adjacent one.

What gear should I bike in on flat road?

For riding on flat roads, it is recommended to use the middle gear. It is a common choice among bikers as it helps you reduce pressure from your feet onto the pedals.

Can I replace tourney with acera?

You have the option to upgrade the front derailleur and shifter to Shimano Acera for improved performance. Sadly the rear derailleur can’t be upgraded. If your bike is old and the rear derailleur feels clunky, try replacing the cable and/or replace with a new Tourney derailleur.

Do I need a new derailleur if I get a bigger cassette?

You’ll have bigger jumps between the gears, but you’ll have a bigger range of gears. With a wider range cassette, you may need a new rear derailleur with a longer cage.

Which Shimano gear is best?

Considered as the top of the entry level gearing, Shimano Acera is a complete groupset in terms for performance for amateurs. Acera is essentially a nine-speed system, which although basic compared to higher options, is actually aesthetically and practically rather impressive.

Does speed matter for front derailleur?

The number of rear speeds (the 9 in 2×9) marked for a front derailleur isn’t too important, but the cage of the derailleur may be thinner for higher number of rear speeds (so if your chain isn’t designed for high enough speeds, you may have some rubbing on the cage, especially if you don’t adjust it properly) — as

Can I use an 8 speed derailleur on a 7 speed cassette?

8 speed shifter and cassette, 7 speed derailleur? You’ll be fine. There’s no “probably” about it. 6-, 7- and 8-speed gear is all cross-compatible in terms of chain width.

How do you change a 7 speed derailleur?

Quote from video: Put the mech to the smallest sprocket using your sti's. Pull the cable crimp off the end of the inner cable using some pliers then undo the cable crimper bolt by unscrewing it anti-clockwise.

Can I change 7-speed to 10 speed cassette?

Condensed answer: If you have a 7-speed specific hub, you won’t be able to install a 10-speed cassette on it because the hub will be too short. If the hub isn’t 7-speed specific, and actually designed for more speeds, you will be able to install a 10-speed cassette on it.

Can I upgrade just my derailleur?

You’d have to swap the front derailleur but you might be able to keep the crankset. However, you need to look at your rear wheel. If you have an old style freewheel (sprockets and pawls mechanism in a single unit) you can’t upgrade it to 9 speed.
