Questions & Answers

It has Shimano XT components, but one of the 11-speeds does not work This is a 40 crankset with 2 shafts. How will the 11th amendment affect In the 42nd and 11th paragraphs How can I figure out if 46 fits my mountain ?

You will be able to use it if you have a rear axle. Having a long enough cage is essential. You should check what Shimano recommends depending on the crank rings you have and if you choose a 11-speed The 42nd or the 11th

This rear derailleur will fit a shimano grx rear derailleur with a wolf tooth hanger extender and a zipp 454 nsw freehub body, right?

I have the 11-speed GRX derailleur, but it depends on which derailleur you have With an Ultegra RX Detailer and Wolftooth roadlink, 42 is on the move. You will need an 11-inch computer to run the program This is a speed freehub body that works with SRAM and Shimano hubs You will need a spacer between the freehub and cassette, but you will have speed.

The bike I have is a 2x11 with 105 shimano gears. Before installing this, what are some considerations I should take into account?

The 11- is what I used The cassette has 40 teeth, and I have my Cannondale CaadX setup set up 1x with a 40t ring. As long as it is a mid or long cage 105 rear derailleur, it should work. In addition to Rival 22 shifters, Sram GX 2x11 rear derailleur and 46/30 front chainrings, I'm constructing a bicycle now that will use 1 1-1 chainrings and 12-26 rear chainrings The cassette has 40 tracks. What you want is what you should do. Make it your own by mixing and matching components

Can I use my Breezer Radar Expert with this?

It does not matter how expensive the bike is as long as you have a derailleur with a long (or even mid) cage. There are 10 or 11 gears on your hub, so it has 10 or 11 gears. It's not possible for me to answer you

Selected User Reviews For SHIMANO XT CS-M8000 Cassette

I am in love with this
5/5

There's an 11-mile run that I'm going to run With a 34t chainring, I have a 42 on my other bike. This bike has been designed for a 38t chainring so that I can get a little more top-end speed from it. In my opinion, the 11- was the best choice To compensate for the 38t, we subtract 46. I was thrilled with how well it worked. While the terrain appears to be rolling in low, it feels like little old ladies with walkers may pass you at any moment, yet there isn't a hill steep enough to stop you.

One cassette provides a wide range of options
5/5

By doing this I was able to work out the ranges I needed using the two front rings, with the single 34 up front and the one 11-inch ring behind it Despite my 46 at the rear, I really didn't lose much ground between then and now. A 46-t is massive, but it may be just the thing if you want a really good crawling compromise on a 1x setup. with an XT shifter and mech. It took about an hour to pair them up but thankfully after it was done all I had to do was forget about it. It works perfectly, and even switching up to the 46 is as simple as changing anything else in You just have to pay attention to the spacing of the B screws.

Having a 46t in front of you Part of what I used this for was to convert my Specialized Epic Hardtail XC mountain bike from a 1x drivetrain I have a SRAM PG-23 on my bike The 1130th, 11th The speed of 11 mph I would have liked to have had an easier low gear, but I did not need a 42t cassette
5/5

The 11- was given to me There is a 46T version of the M8000 that is compatible with it. In fact, I didn't have to adjust the derailleur at all. It was fortunate that my bike came with the longer SGS cage on the derailleur, otherwise it might not have been as simple. A budget alternative to the SRAM Eagle drivetrain is this cassette, which may appeal to those searching for an Eagle drivetrain on a budget. I, for one, found it to be delightful. Please note P. When reading this review, you may have noticed that some of the lingo sounds unfamiliar. If this is the case, you should probably do some more research before purchasing.

I'm in love
5/5

I switched from SRAM to Shimano since this product provides the same or better quality but with much better flexibility, especially in the cassette. You can combine it with Wolf cogs to increase your range from 11 to 14 speeds with it. The number 40 / 42 to the number 11.

You cannot go wrong with XT
5/5

On my 1x setup, I used this in conjunction with an 1up 27t big ring. I love them both. I am friends with a group of 11-year-olds There are 46 cassettes jealous of each other. It appears that I have a better range and am using more gears at the moment.

I can't live without it
5/5

Five thousand two hundred and fifty four kilometers later, I replaced my old cassette. Over the period of April 2017 to May 2020, these expenses accumulated. While using my chain tool, I replaced my chain three times during that period to ensure I did not over stretch it.

Although there are large jumps between the 27, 31, 35, and 40T sprockets, shifting is still very smooth
5/5

Considering the size of the cassette, this is a good purchase. To accommodate the 35 and 40 teeth sprockets, I used a Wolf Tooth Roadlink and a Shimano Ultegra derailleur with a long cage. My climbing ability has doubled now that I can climb the extended 15-foot tower Rather than grunting at 40 rpm with my old 28T max set, I could comfortably ride in 20% grades in my area at 70 rpm instead of grunting at 20 rpm -.

There are 11 speed cassettes on the XT
5/5

Product delivery by Back Country is always consistent with what is described and I received the package much earlier than I.
