Bought to make reverb easier
Posted12 May 2015
" I run a 3x10 setup on my bike as I need the gears,
It makes mounting the reverb remote a little difficult.
I went for the right remote upside down on the left side of the bar.
Switching to these have enabled me to move the reverb remote next to the brake clamp so it's a bit easier to flick the seat position.
Highly recommend if you're doing this but otherwise it' gives a slightly cleaner setup
P.S the weight is identical to the normal clamp "
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Good Fit

Works Great
Posted1 February 2015
" Nice controllable speed for the CO2 fill, simple to use once you've familiarised yourself with the instructions!
The pump bit is handy, it may take you about an hour to pump a tyre from flat however it is good for a topup as the co2 cannisters never seem to get a good pressure in a mtb tyre.
Feels quite high quality really. "

Great cassette, 650 miles and the wear is good
Posted3 November 2014
" Really glad I upgraded to 10sp, I opted for 36T, I don't really use the 1st gear much but the ratios on the middle gears is really progressive with the 36T option
I'm running a triple chainring on full SLX cranks upfront as I still need the high gears but the whole setup feels much better than the old 9sp 34T I had on.
Probably the best upgrade i've done.. "

Awesome for mountain biking too
Posted3 November 2014
" I always wear a hoodie riding (not into all of this commuter / road biker wear) so after much research I found this, it's splashproof which is great for those "too warm for a waterproof, too cold for a tshirt days" where it may rain.
I was caught in a shower after a ride the other day and the water beads on top, with a quick shake you're dry again.
I've not actually washed it yet so my only concern is, does it stay waterproof after washing it properly? "

Wouldn't be without it now
Posted3 November 2014
" Seemed an un-needed expense when I bought it but actually, I would not be without it.
I always carry a pump with me too as not sure I always get the best pressure from a 20g can.
For me, when it's a night ride or it's chucking with rain and all I want to do is get on with the ride etc this is perfect, as you push the nozzle down on the valve the nozzle rear slides out the back of the unit, the natural hold is the back of it so you can push hard on the valve but you need to allow space for this to slide out.
Overall it's excellent though "

Is this the latest polymer coated version of the cable?

Shimano have done PTFE cables for a while, but I notice that the shift & brake cables on my Ultegra 11-speed have a copper/bronze coloured outer coating. I believe this is the new polymer coated version.

Can you confirm which version of the cables you're selling?

lowering gearing on a 2009 Variado Expert triple

Owing to age(72) I need to lower the gearing on my bike. Is it feasible to fit a Shimano dyna-sys slx 10 spd. 11-34 cassette to replace the existing one, or is there another option such as changing the chain rings, which you could supply.
This is a MTB cassette really.

You will need... SLX 10sp derailleur SGS, SLX 10sp cassette, 10sp chain.

Have you tried the other cassette options for Shimano 105?

11-25T: 11-12-13-14-15-17-19-21-23-25
11-28T: 11-12-13-14-15-17-19-21-24-28
12-25T:12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21-23-25
12-27T: 12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21-24-27

Or any of the other road bike cassettes? Generally speaking the larger the smallest gear, the higher the ratio throughout the cassette/

Hope this helps

Hi, My Q relates to compatibility of this cassette with a touring bike 105STI levers & Deore triple chainset

If I bought this cassette (or the HGX) together with a Dyna-Sys HGX or SLX chain, would it operate OK with my touring bike transmission(105STI levers, long-throw derailleur & Deore triple chainset)?
Cheers
Alan
If the shifters / rear derailleur are 10sp dyna sys then it should be fine.

The chain / shift distance is smaller to accommodate 10 gears vs. 9speed.
