Are all Shimano 9 speed shifters compatible?

Shimano shifters, whether for 6, 7, 8, or 9 speeds are compatible with all the Shimano RDs for 6 to 9 speeds, and with Shimano 10 speed road RDs (not with 10 speed MTB RDs).

Are all 9 speed cassettes the same?

Cassette sprocket-tooth widths

Up through 9-speeds, all cassettes use very nearly the same width of sprocket teeth, and will work with 7/8 or 9-speed chains. Old Uniglide 6-speed cassettes have larger spacing between sprockets, and like older freewheels, have the same shifting issues.

Can you mix and match Shimano components?

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 Shimano derailleurs compatible?

Just for clarity, current generation (10-, 11- and 12-speed) Shimano road and mountain bike components are not inter-compatible with each other because they use different cable pull ratios. For example, you couldn't use a set of road shifters with a mountain bike rear derailleur.

Are Shimano 9 and 10 speed compatibility?

The 9 speed shadow(Shimano mtn) rear derailleur will work fine with road 10 speed shifters.

Can I mix Shimano and SRAM?

SRAM's cassettes and chains are compatible with all of Shimano's groupsets, and vice versa. Likewise, Shimano and SRAM buyers have the freedom to mix different levels of chains and cassettes so long as they are designed for the same kind of transmission.

Can I use a 10 speed cassette with a 9 speed derailleur?

A 9-Speed MTB Derailleur Cannot Work With a 10-Speed MTB Cassette. Mountain bike groupsets with 10 and more speeds have a different pull ratio than those with fewer speeds. For that reason, a 9-speed MTB derailleur and a 10-speed MTB cassette aren't a good match.

Can I fit a 10 speed cassette on a 9 speed hub?

The most you should need to do to allow a 10 speed cassette to work on most 9 speed hubs is install a spacer behind the cassette to make sure the cassette seats tightly. ... You can put a new 10 or 11 speed cassette on any of the older 9 speed hubs.

Can I replace a 9 speed cassette with a 11 speed?

No you will need an 11 speed wheel and hub and a new 11 speed rear mech. You only need a specific wheel / freehub body if it is a road cassette. An 11 speed Shimano MTB cassette will fit straight onto your MTB wheel which is running the 9 speed cassette.

Is SRAM better than Shimano?

Market Share. Currently SRAM are dominating the high-end market, while Shimano service more of the entry-level to mid-range enthusiast segments. In the aftermarket sector the gap is closer between the two, especially at the high-end and flagship level.

Can I use 11 speed derailleur with 10 speed shifter?

the 10 speed and 11 speed derailleurs are interchangeable as far as the shifters go, the difference is that a 10 speed derailleur doesn't like a cassette cog much bigger than the 36t it was designed for, where the 11 speed derailleurs are designed for 40 and 42t cogs, and seem to be able to handle bigger.

What is the hierarchy of Shimano components?

Shimano road groupset hierarchy:

Claris – 8-speed. Sora – 9-speed. Tiagra – 10-speed. 105 – 11-speed.
