Are all Shimano 105 cassettes compatible?
When SRAM entered the road groupset market in 2006, it decided to adopt Shimano’s specifications for its chains and cassettes. As a result, the chains and cassettes from the two brands have always been completely interchangeable for any given type of transmission (e.g. 11-speed).
What is the largest cassette for Shimano 105?
Shimano offers a 105 cassette with an 11-tooth sprocket up to a 28-tooth sprocket – often written as 11-28T. It also offers a 12-25T cassette, an 11-30T, a wide-range 11-32T cassette, and an even wider 11-34T.
Are all 10 speed Shimano 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.
Is there a 10 speed Shimano 105?
The Shimano CS-5700 105 10-Speed Cassette features a nickel-plated finish that is corrosion resistant and its largest sprockets are mounted on a lightweight alloy carrier to reduce the weight without reducing rigidity.
Can I use an Ultegra cassette with 105?
There’s no reason why you can’t use an Ultegra cassette with an otherwise 105 groupset, or vice versa. With both 105 and Ultegra, the largest sprocket you can officially use is a 34-tooth, although in truth you can go much larger than that; we have gear systems with 11-40 cassettes that work very happily.
Are MTB and road cassettes interchangeable?
SRAM and Shimano cassettes, on either road or mountain bike, are interchangeable with each other as the spacing is the same between the sprockets.
Can you put a mountain bike cassette on a road bike?
A mountain bike cassette can work on a road bike only if it has the same cog pitch as its road equivalent. If the cog pitch is different, the shifting would be inaccurate.
Can I use a 105 cassette with tiagra?
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.
Can I put any 10 speed cassette on my bike?
Yes, if you have a Shimano 10 speed MTB shifter and derailleur and 10 speed cassette it should all work together.
What is the best 10 speed cassette?
Wiggle’s best selling 10-speed mountain bike cassette is the Shimano HG81 SLX 10 Speed Cassette. Meanwhile, 11-speed mountain bike cassettes come in even larger sprocket ranges, providing an even greater gear ratio choice, such as 11-40, 10-42 and even 11-46.
