    105 triple crank with new Shim 10-speed mtb cassette (11-34)?

    Has anybody verified that the new 10-speed mtb cassettes from Shimano work properly with the 10-speed 105 crankset and shifters?

    I am currently running the IRD 10-speed 11-34, which works fine (with mtb long cage rear mech). Don't want to order the Shim 10-speed 11-34 until I know for sure there's not some subtle problem . . .

    I believe in their advertising Shimano made some statement to the effect that the new 10-speed mtb stuff would "not be compatible with 10-speed road components" or something. Thanks

    I posted the below info the other day, yes it will work fine as long as you have the 9spd long cage rear deraileur on back these deraileurs are 8,9,10 speed compadable. The brand new Dyna series shimmano 10spd MTB long cage rear deraileurs will not work as the cable rate is diffrent and will not match the 105 shifters but the rear cassette works great.

    Ride Safe,

    For all out there that want more gearing with there 10spd tandems this set up works great. I have Ultegra 10spd shifters, FSA Triple cranks with a 26 tooth small ring instead of a 30 tooth along with a Shimmano XT long cage rear derailuer. I removed the 11-28 Ultegra rear cassette and replaced it with one of the newley released Shimmano Dyna SLX 11-34 10spd mountain bike cassettes and it works and shifts great ( I also have run a Sram XX10 11-32 with no problems) I now have realy good hill climbing gearing on our Co-Motion tandem. This set up works as well as the same set up in 9spd that we had on our last Co-Motion tandem.

    Just thought I would pass this information on

    Sounds great - I've just ordered the bits. I'm running a 12-27 cassette, I am assuming I will require a longer chain to suit the 11-34 and the MTB Rear Mech?

    The chain may be ok or it may need a link, you can check it by the following test. When you install the chain or a new chain put it on the big ring up front at the crank and the smallest cog or gear in the rear at the cassette and size it so that the rear deraileur arm is as close to straight up an down as it can be, in this configuration all will be good.

    Best Of Luck, Ride Safe,
