Shimano FH-M475 10 speed cassette

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to install a 10 speed cassette on a fhm475 hub. Thanks

Shimano's Dealer manual doesn't list a hub by that model number. Can you give more details or confirm that's what it really is?

It's an 8/9/10 speed compatible hub, more or less Alivio quality I believe, six-bolt disc compatible as well.

thanks guys, for the conformation.

i have seen 8/9 speed derailleurs and 10 speed ones, is there a difference? should i just be looking at the max size tooth count instead of what is listed as the description?

More info - Road? MTB? Shimano? SRAM? Other?

There can be compatibility problems with different drivetrain parts.

Interesting. The Dealer Manual on Shimano's USA web site doesn't list it at all. I wonder if it's a Europe-only component like their Trekking cranks.

No, won't work. The Zee shifter is Dyna-Sys, the 5701 RD isn't, that's a mismatch in cable pull ratio. Any Dyna-Sys RD, Zee or Deore to XTR, will work with the Zee shifter, with either GS or SGS cage length (just make sure you don't use a Shimano 9 speed or earlier mtb RD). The GS cage length is all you need with the 1 x setup. I would also recommend a narrow-wide chainring, with that you shouldn't need a chain retention device on the front.

No ten speed mtb shifter will work with the 5701 RD. All 10 speed Shimano mtb items are Dyna-Sys. The 5701 RD would work if you were using it with a 9 speed mtb shifter.

If you want 10 speed, and need to go with a mtb shifter, all you have to do is get a Dyna Sys RD to go with the Dyna Sys 10 speed shifter. All of that will work just fine with your 12x30 10 speed cassette. And I'd use a narrow wide chainring for chain rentention up front.

RubberDuckie, I did some checking on the part numbers you listed in post #11 , the Deore T610 shifter is a 10 speed mtb-type shifter, part of a Deore trekking group, and there is no mention of the T610 group being Dyna-Sys. I wasn't familiar with that trekking group. The M610 group is Deore Dyna-Sys, which is the common Shimano mtb 10 speed stuff, using a different cable pull ratio. My GUESS, and it's just that because I've never laid eyes on anything in the T610 trekking group, is that the T610 10 speed shifter would be compatible with the 5701 RD.

10 speed Trekking is the same as 10 speed Mountain, they're both Dyna-Sys.
