Shimano CS-6700 Ultegra Bicycle Cassette (10-Speed)
- Significantly cheaper than the top-line Dura-Ace offerings, they’re also more durable, and only slightly heavier.
- And, they’re heavier in the center of a wheel, where their effect is negligible.
- Shimano’s improved its shifting ramps on this iteration, too, meaning the fabulous shift quality you expect from the Japanese component giant is even better than you remember.
- I also replaced my old Bontrager Race wheels for Bontrager RXL wheels for the same reason.
- I now can ride 40 to 45 miles and not exhausted at the end of the ride.
- If you ride hills this cassette gear ratio with lighter wheels is the way to go.
- Not only am I back on the 12% grades, I also find that I have plenty of great gear combinations for all terrains.
- The big question everyone seems to grapple with on this item is if their rear derailleur can handle the 30 tooth cog.
- My first stab at it had the chain just slightly too long, and the idler cog did touch the cassette when set to the 30 tooth ring.
- I watched a couple of youtube videos on proper chain length, followed their suggestions, and everything fell into place perfectly.
- While on my ride yesterday I went so fast that I broke the time-space continuum.
- You should really be careful with the power this cassette give you.
- If anyone else has tried the time travelling thing, please let me know how it has worked out for you.
- I live in the Central Valley of California where the riding is nothing but flat.
- When I ride hilly and mountain areas in the Sierra Nevada, Pacific Range, and along the coast, I do struggle on the high grades and wish I had that extra gear.
- The Shimano CS-6700 Ultegra 12-30T 10 Speed Cassette was the answer.
- Don’t get me wrong, I miss the 11-28 for descents and top speed.
- With right tools, it was easy to swap out the cassette.
- Requires Park tools FR-5G Cassette lock ring tool or equivalent.
- It is also recommended to use a sprocket removing chain wrench Like the Park Tools SR-1.
- This freewheel was the only option to get a 14 tooth rear sprocket.
- This unit comes with an extra spacer and it is unclear whether you need it or not.
- In my case installed without the spacer the inner cog ran into my plastic spoke guard.
- The shifting is much smoother than my existing (4,000 mile) cassette.
- It would probably work better with the short cage version of the Shimano 105 rear derailleur.
- This is definitely not a cassette for climbing hills, but on the flat it is a dream.
- The 12-30T provide me with one lower gear on both the high and low gearing.
- I find myself spending about equal time in both the higher and lower gear front sprocket.
- The lower gear definitely helps my climb in the Bay Area hills.
- I prefer the minute changes in rear ratio rather than a big change associated with extremely low gearing.
- Got it to test the 53/18 set-up for racing IM distance before getting into a more expensive cassette, but have to that this cassette really performs.
- Not a huge difference, but I got a decent deal I think, and shifting is excellent with a new KMC Ti-n gold coated chain and the original 105 10-sp shifters.
- Best part was the ability to ask questions as to its compatibility to my bike.
- I did not have to change my derailleur for this 12-30 .
