    (Tiagra 4601) 10/9 speed derailleur compatibility

    My ultegra 6600 derailleur broke and now I am looking for a replacement 9 speed derailleur. It seems that the only new 9 speed road derailleur shops have in stock is the Sora 3500. I'd like to get a Tiagra or above, which makes me wonder what other Shimano derailleurs will take a 9 speed chain...

    Shimano 9sp medium cage derailleur or RD-6600 cage plates

    Hello, my rear derailleur plates got bent and I need to replace either the plates (which seem to be really hard to get) or a new derailleur. Any 9-speed Shimano GS Sora or better will do. Thanks!

    Front Derailleur Struggles To Shift To Smallest Chainring

    The rear derailleur on my bike seems to be set up perfectly but if I'm in a smaller cog on the rear cassette and the middle chainring the bike will struggle to go to the smaller chainring and I have to go one of the larger cogs in the cassette to get it to shift. What can I do to get it into the...

    8 speed down tube shifters

    I've been cobbling together a bike over the last few months, and it's now almost complete. It needs some way to change gear though. It's 8 speed, so if anyone has an old 8 speed road mech in their bits box, I'd be interested. I've managed to get hold of a 105 front and Ultegra brakes, so...

    The Abbey HAG derailleur alignment tool

    Is it really that good or is it just the new cool thing to use? A 'work of Art' meets functionality and all that c**p. Is it really the Campagnolo Super Record of bicycle maintenance tools? It should be for the price. Abbey Bike Tools HAG

    Shimano Medium Cage Derailleur Capacity

    What's the absolute maximum size cassette I can use with a Shimano medium cage gs derailleur? I do know that with the short cage the maximum spec is a 28t cassette but in reality it will work fine with a 32. The max your supposed to use with a medium cage is a 32t so will it too take an extra 4...
