Lindarets & Wolf Tooth Take to the Road with RoadLink for Wide-Range Shimano Drivetrains

8/5/2015 : sicklines

If you’ve got a road, commuter, or cross bike you’ve been wanting to allow a wide-range casette to work with your ten/eleven speed Shimano drivetrain Lindares and Wolf Tooth have a solution for you.

Introducing the Lindarets x Wolf Tooth RoadLink: Allowing the use of wide-range cassettes with ten- and eleven-speed Shimano road drivetrains.

The US-made RoadLink is an ideal solution for riders looking to convert their road, gravel, ‘cross, or commuter bike to the simplicity and light weight of a single chainring, or for those whose riding demands lower gearing than a typical double can provide.

The RoadLink is optimized for use with ten- or eleven-speed 11-36t and 11-40t cassettes and works great with Wolf Tooth’s 40-tooth Giant Cogs and Drop-Stop chainrings. The RoadLink is compatible with Shimano ten- or eleven-speed road derailleurs and shifters and can be used with single or double chainrings.

The RoadLink is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum, anodized black, and laser etched at Wolf Tooth Components’ Minneapolis facility and comes fitted with stainless steel hardware. The RoadLink installs in moments with little more than a 5mm Allen wrench and a dab of grease.

Important Notes:
Due to the lack of a clutch mechanism on Shimano road derailleurs, secondary chain retention (front derailleur or chain device) may be needed, especially for rough- or off-road use.
Due to variations in derailleur hanger geometry, chainstay length, chainring size, B-screw adjustment, and suspension configuration, individual results will vary.
