Will this mix of Shimano 10 speed components work together?

4 min read

Asked by: Tanya Robinson

Are all Shimano 10 speed components compatible?

The problem when looking at TIAGRA component compatibility is that 10-speeds are not officially compatible with each other, and with the 4600 and 4700 series components.

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.

Are all 10 speed cassettes compatible?

All Shimano and SRAM cassettes up to 10 speed are broadly compatible. They all use Shimano’s Hyperglide II freehub body spline pattern. Cassettes with the same number of sprockets have the same sprocket spacing, sprocket width and overall width.

Are all Shimano road shifters compatible?

Basically all 9 speed and below Shimano MTB derailleurs will work on all Shimano Road shifters. There is an exception for some of the older 7900 Dura Ace shifters which had a different pull ratio and also one of the Shimano levers with hydraulic brake lines.

Can I use tiagra cassette with 105?

If you go for Tiagra you can’t upgrade to 105 one component at a time because 10-speed and 11-speed drivetrain components aren’t interchangeable. You’d have to upgrade most of the groupset components at once for optimum performance.

Are Shimano freehub bodies interchangeable?

Most Shimano Freehub bodies are interchangeable.

Can you mix Shimano shifters and derailleurs?

Shimano derailleur compatibility

Most 8- and 9-speed Shimano mountain bike and road kit is inter-compatible because they both use the same cable pull ratio. This means that you can use an 8 -or 9-speed mountain bike derailleur with road shifters or vice versa.

Can you mix Shimano 105 and Ultegra?

The parts of DURA-ACE, ULTEGRA and 105 are compatible with each other as long as they have the same number of gears.

Are Shimano parts interchangeable?

Shimano’s Dura-Ace and Ultegra Di2 components are highly interchangeable provided they all bear the company’s e-tube technology (the one exception being the original Dura-Ace 7970 groupset, which uses a unique wiring harness).

Are Shimano cassettes interchangeable?

In some cases, it is possible to run a cassette from a different brand than the rest of your drivetrain. SRAM and Shimano cassettes, on either road or mountain bike, are interchangeable with each other as the spacing is the same between the sprockets.

Will a 12 speed cassette fit on a 10 speed hub?

In addition to being able to fit our 12-speed cassettes on Shimano HG 10 and 11 speed freehubs, you can also convert the ROTOR 13-speed cassette into a 12-speed one and use it with your current wheels.

Are Shimano 10 and 11 speed cassettes the same width?

No, 11speed mountain cassettes are slightly wider than 10/9/8 speed ones, so newer Shimano free hubs come with a small spacer (only 1 or 2 mm) so they’re still compatible with older drive trains.

Is Shimano Tiagra better than deore?

IMO Deore/Tiagra are about the same in quality/level(within the Shimano ranges) though are designed for differing uses really. If you wanted to upgrade the hubs XT would be a good choice. For touring bikes Deore is the business, even though it’s designed for mountain bikes.

What level is Shimano Tiagra?

Shimano’s Tiagra is an entry level, 10-speed groupset often spec’d on many sub-£1000 value and city bikes for its durable and reliable properties.

Are Shimano 105 and Ultegra compatible?

ULTEGRA, 105 and TIAGRA parts are compatible with each other as long as they have the same number of gears. Note that ULTEGRA and 105 are only available in the older generation of 2×10 speed (ULTEGRA: 6700 series ゙, 105: 5700 series), while TIAGRA only offers 2×10 speed.

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.

Will a Shimano 11 speed chain work on a 10 speed cassette?

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

Can a 10 speed derailleur work on a 11 speed cassette?

You can use the 10 speed rear dérailleur on an 11 speed cassette with no issues at all but you can not use 10 speed shifters on an 11 speed cassette.

Can a 10 speed derailleur work on a 12 speed cassette?

-10 speed shifter sets your throw to match the rear cassette. -chains have the same outer dimension, the 12 speed derailleur would have narrower cogs than what required for a 10 speed. –As long as you can set the high/low limits on the derailleur to keep it on the cassette it should be fine.

Can I use Ultegra cassette with tiagra?

So, is it possible to run an Ultegra cassette on a Tiagra bike? Yes, no worries at all. All works well, with the exception of a little extra weight. However, depending on how much wear on your chain, you may need to replace it.
