changing from 11-42 up to 11-46 (chain links)
Im currently running a shimano 11 speed 11-42 cassette. I would like to change to a 11 - 46 cassette. I have a shimano xt long cage derailleur. Do i need to add an extra chain links to make this work? or is it a simple swap of cassettes?
Thanks for your time
You would likely require extra links to take up the extra capacity, though we generally advise exchanging the chain at the same time as the cassette so to ensure the same wear rates.
Hope this helps!
