Had my eye on a 10spd wide range cassette but pulled the trigger on the m8000 setup instead for only a few more dollars. This creates a very snug and slop-free interface that also feels really smooth too. Easy to install and also really easy to maintain. To test this, I tried to shift as badly as I possibly could. Even when multi-downshifting, there is next to no lag, helping to maintain cadence.
In conjunction with labyrinth and contact seals, a long service life is guaranteed and the well-known silky smooth running of the hub is achieved. For my style of riding, it's testament that despite the niggles above, I replaced my 11-46T with another one, now I've had a taste of it I just can't get rid of that big gear. Are they trying to be different deliberately? It does mean that the Q-Factors are broader though. Weight: 725 grams Hits: Quick shifts, plenty of chainring options and easy con- version to a single-ring drivetrain should the rider choose that option. This is apparently due to the way the helical drive disconnects from the drive ratchet. What's left is the durable and robust bearing the hub - tried and tested cone bearing with hardened and polished steel bearing shells and stainless steel balls.
It does mean that the Q-Factors are broader though. So it would come down to real world performance, can anyone give a direct comparison of the two systems? Shifts better then anything I've ever had. I do miss the double downshift though. Completely changed my 'gravel' bike into a true all-purpose bike that I can also use for touring. Misses: The cable routing is slightly hard to use. Typical great Shimano quality and engineering because it shifts beautifully and runs quietly. I much prefer the Shimano downshift 2 way release, as I like using my index finger instead of thumb, and the single push multi-release regularly comes in handy, plus in my experience the slimmer Shadow mechs are less prone to damage than sticky out Sram ones.
The wide range of available gears saves your knees from undue stress on lung-busting climbs, available in 11-40T, 11-42T, or 11-46T versions to suit your riding style and local terrain. Why do you ask for registration to view some articles? The gearing is identical to the 11-42T cassette but instead of the 42T at its outermost it replaces this with a 46T, more on that later. Weight: 290 grams Hits: Quick and precise shifts coupled with an easy- to-adjust derailleur that seems more durable and less finicky than the Shimano. Yes, there is a pretty large jump between the 37t and 46t granny gear but its nothing that's gonna ruin your ride. ? I don't feel like I'm missing anything with this setup. That's 1 reason I cant think about or those 13-28T are defective.
The upshift is smooth and uneventful too, with no unnecessary clunking of metal on metal. I ran a 10 speed chain on M8000 mech, cassette and shifter with no problems. Thankfully, these are becoming more and more available than ever before. For all of the specs, prices, and weights of the two groupsets though,. I love the engagement with this cassette. Premier membership plans start at just £2.
First Impressions Sorry, but the rest of this article is for members only. In case of items not available from stock, the given delivery time also includes the procurement of the goods from our suppliers. Counter that with my experience of Sram jockey wheels like ninja stars and sloppy shifting after 600 miles. I am one of those people that shifts all the time so shifting had better work right. The reason is actually because registered users come back and look at more of our content.
The cranks also sit wider, which is to maximise clearance and compatibility with more frames — especially as modern trail bikes aim to fit wider and wider tyres. Weight: 265 grams pair Hits: Fast engagement and release coupled with textured paddles make these super easy to use. Premier member gallery extra Sorry but this content is only available to our Premier Members. Look for a complete review in an upcoming issue of Bike Magazine. I personally run a 30-tooth set up on 29ers and a 32-tooth on smaller-wheeled bikes. Pickup is quick, with a suitably fast 7° engagement.
Otherwise has held up well so far. I rode an Orbea Rallon on the first day, which was outfitted with a 1×12 drivetrain and the 4-piston Enduro brakes. The best part is all works right out of the box. For the specially shaped teeth of the chainrings fast gear changes are no problem. We get asked this a lot. Whats the deal on chainline? The free travel when pedaling is immensely reduced and allows you always the best possible start, whether in the race or on the trail.
Our last newsletter was sent out in early 2018 — we really should send out a few. Counter that with my experience of Sram jockey wheels like ninja stars and sloppy shifting after 600 miles. When shifting from 46 back down to 37, there is a small jump as the chain drops, but it is not an issue. Couldn't have asked for more. Fresh everything, plus the ease of 11spd without an xd driver. Rather than thinking of this as a typical shootout, we sought to explain the difference in all these categories between the two systems to let you, the rider, decide which suits your style best. And it caused me to crash, luckily not badly.
With the new master cylinder though, the braking feel is a touch smoother. The bite point is still rock solid — that is unchanged over previous Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. Direct-mount front derailleur: Bolt it on and take your single-ring system to a larger gear range. I went with 30 chainring in front and 11x42 in rear and don't feel like I am missing any gears, other than on climbs in big ring when you want a little more power and less spinning the jump from the 42 to 38 you can feel if you shift during climb. I can swap between 29 or 28 wheels with no issues.
