I have a Diamond back Response, which I bought a Mavic Cross ride wheel set that has a SLX 11-34 9 speed cassette. Current 8 speed cassette (Acera) is a 11-30 which the SLX is 11-30 in 8 of the 9 clogs. I really don't need the extra ring with 4 teeth. I was thinking on just using the 8 gears and ignoring the last ring. I am sure this has come across in the past but its a big forum to read it all
All I want to do for now is use the shifter and brake levers for the the new disc Mechanical brakes and use the 8 speeds of the rear cassette. As I said the 4 extra teeth I do not need, if I need that I need that Ill need to find another hill to climb lol.
So? Is it possible to use the Acera derailor with a SLX cassette? If so what possible problems I may have?
