Cheapest RD that will clear 40t for 1x8 utility bike setup.

Currently have a Shimano Acera RD-M330 but I doubt it will clear the 11-40t 8 speed I want. Any cheap recommendations to clear 40t cassette? Having trouble searching for this attribute. Need capability, not performance. Thanks.

I am running a Wolftooth RoadLink to run a 40t with a max 34t RD.

No shifting issues and for a utility bike it is the cheapest option.

My setup is a 2x8 (13-40).

Nice! New product I guess. Just need this to be available to buy somewhere. Did the “find a dealer” and well see if I can get one. Thanks.

cheap may work, but depending on level of cheap, there is also cost over time and reliability, that said nothing wrong with the acera

when I see this listed elsewhere I see it with 34T max and 43T total wrap capacity. I think REI is likely a typo.

ya that m3020 totally checks out. Def the winner. Just need to find one.

Was saying the m360 that rei lists as 43t was suspect.
