CAAD8 + 11 speed

Hi

Anyone tried installing 11 speed on a CAAD8 frame, did you ran in to any issues?

For some reason chain is rubbing against RD hanger. It didn't do it with 10 speed setup. Going to take it to a shop tomorrow, but trying to see if anyone else had issues with this combo.

Thanks.

Did you change the entire rear wheel from 10 speed to 11 speed, or was it just a cassette and RD switch? Could you post some pictures.

If you just swapped in a new cassette, RD and chain, one of the reason that there is now chain rub could be because the wheel was not redished.

I would need to see some pictures or have more information, if the swap was to a brand new 11 speed wheel.

It is a 10/11 speed wheel. I removed the extra spacers (one that came with a wheel, and .5mil that came with 10 speed cassette) installed 11 speed cassettte, also swapped for 11 speed chain and rear Derailure. Not sure if pictures would help...

I installed 6800 on my caad8 frame with no problem. Make sure your derailleur hanger is adjusted.

Could you take a picture of the cassette and where the chain contacts the hanger.

If you already took out the spacer on the freehub, than I am not sure why it would be rubbing.

Sorry was a bit MIA.

So update. I took it to a shop this morning. The hanger was a bit bent, BUT main corporate was the locking thread, thing you screw to the top of cassette, was not screwed in properly somehow. Which caused it to be miss aligned. I feel REALLY stupid. lol. This isn't the first bike I build/rebuild, and certainly not the first cassette I put/swapped. Such a silly mistake to make.

So now everything spins smoothly, and limits screws are adjusted. Just need to twiddle with FD so it doesn't rub, and fine tune rear shifting.

I'm not the grammar police but you probably meant "culprit" (?).

Well indeed. That's what I get for typing late in the evening.
