Can I use an 11 speed shifter with a 10 speed derailleur?

Can I use an 11 speed shifter with a 10 speed derailleur?

No, that will not work. The shifts will not line up across the entire range, because an 11-speed cassette is not just a 10-speed cassette with an extra cog stuck on at the same spacing.

Will a 10 speed chain fit an 11 speed cassette?

Yes. In addition to the points Nathan makes about 10/11 speed compatibility, a new chain should really be installed with a new cassette in any case.

Will 9 speed derailleur work with 10 speed shifter?

A 9-speed Shimano derailleur will work on a 10-speed cassette if the shifter is also made by Shimano and designed for road bikes. It’s also possible to combine a new 9-speed derailleur by Campagnolo with a 10-speed shifter and cassette made by Campagnolo.

What is the difference between 10 speed and 11 speed chain?

Chains for 11-speed systems are around 5.4mm wide on the outside, vs. around 5.9mm wide for 10-speed ones, so that’s 0.25mm narrower from the center of the cog tooth to the end of the chain pin on each side.

Will a 12 speed chain work on 11 speed?

Condensed answer: A 12-speed chain can work with an 11-speed cassette. However, it’s recommended to avoid using a Shimano 12-speed chain because it doesn’t play well with 11-speed chainrings.

Will a 12 speed chain work on 11-speed?

Can I use an 11 speed cassette on a 9 speed derailleur?

No, an 11 speed road shifter has a different pull ratio than an 8, 9 or 10 speed. Any 8, 9 or 10 speed road shifter will work with any 8, 9 or 10 speed road rear derailleur (unless it’s Tiagra 4700). However, the 11 speed road system pulls more cable per shift and therefore is not backwards compatible.

Are 10 and 11-speed chains the same?

Since 10 and 11 speed chains are almost the same width, as well as cassette teeth, 10 speed chain can be used in stead of 11 speed one, without it jamming between the sprockets. However, this will still not work perfectly and will cause premature sprocket wear, so better to avoid it.

Can a Shimano 10 speed shifter work with an 11 speed shifter?

And your intuition is correct that a Shimano 11-speed shifter will not work well with a 10-speed front derailleur because the 11-speed shifter is designed to actuate the longer lever arm of Shimano 11-speed front derailleurs.

Can a SRAM front derailleur work with an 11 speed shift lever?

As for the front derailleur, a SRAM 10-speed road front derailleur will work acceptably with a SRAM 11-speed shift lever, but a front derailleur is perhaps the least expensive part of the…

How does the 11 speed shift lever work?

The 11 speed road shifters pull more cable for each gear step (each “ click ”). So you’ll have shifted through the whole 10 speed cassette after 8 or 9 clicks. You won’t be able to shift to certain gears reliably, there will be lots of noise and ghost shifting. Similar to badly adjusted cable tension or a bent derailleur hanger.

What kind of derailluer does a 105 Shimano use?

On the back I am using a 11 speed 105 rear derailluer (because is the only one I have at the moment). The cassette I am using is a standard SHIMANO TIAGRA CS-HG500-10 10 SPEED CASSETTE 11-25T.
