Shimano Tiagra 10 speed cassette. £12.99 delivered @ chain reaction cycles

Found 8th Sep 2014
Appears to be the lowest price ever for this great value, bargain basement cassette. No, it isn't an ipad, no, it isn't the latest 11 speed, no, it doesn't saves those extra 11 grammes in weight. Does it work? Yes it does, and it is great value for money. (No, I don't work for Shimano..)

One of the reviews states this needs to be on a tiagra hub and doesn't fit on 105 hub - anyone know if this is correct?

Not sure if this helps, but I have used this cassette on Shimano R500, T565 and RS30 wheel sets with no problems, or discernable difference. I think R500 is the Tiagra hub, with RS30 being the 105 hub? Happy to be corrected.
If unsure, check out "old Sheldon Brown", but I have used Shimano hub's interchangably with SRAM and Shimano cassettes with no problems, only one slight tweak was necessary, when using a 7 speed cassette (not freewheel :-) )on the 10 speed hub, as it needed a small spacer.

You can get 105 cassettes on wiggle for 22

Will it improve my STRAVA times?

Compared to a Dura-Ace cassette, probably not :-) Compared to a Tourney cassette with 15,000 miles on it, probably ;-)

I don't think that is correct.

It should fit on any Shimano 10 speed freehub. It should also fit on any 11 speed hub but would require a spacer.

The new 105 (5800) is now 11-speed, so this is possibly what the reviewer was referring to, but as I mentioned above, with a spacer it can be used on an 11 speed hub.

Will it work fine with a SRAM derailleur? Also, do you need a longer cage derailleur for the 12-30 option?

will work fine with a Sam derailleur. Don't think you will need a long cage either. I have shimano zee with 10 speed and that's short cage. but on a hardtail

That is a good question, I am happy to be corrected, but I think a short cage derailleur, on a double chainset will accomodate 12-30 spread, at least on a compact chainset. With a triple, you may find problems with a short cage, but should be ok with a medium, with long cage accounting for a triple and a wider ratio. Field opinion though, I think there is a calculation out there, where you put in largest and smallest chainset teeth and it will tell you the differences. Thanks

Sorry, on the SRAM question, I don't believe there is a difference between SRAM and Shimano cassette, within the same "speed" (e.g. 10 speed)

On a road bike, anything above a 28 tooth sprocket requires a medium or long cage rear derailleur.
This will fit any 10 and 11 speed shimano hub (a spacer is required when fitting to the 11 speed). It will also work on any 10 speed shimano or sram rear derailleur.

Just found 7 speed (12-28 or 12-21) on the site for £9.99; seems a very good price to me.

Correct. Shimano and sram are interchangeable if they are the correct speed.

not true. Shimano have always been conservative on limits. a 30T will work fine with a short cage rear mech and a compact chainset.

You are probably correct, but I am talking about a short cage and not medium or long. I don't like to mess with manufacturer's technical recommendations as being an engineer myself, we don't spec things for fun.

they are also selling a 105 10 speed rear mech for £25.99 - I paid that for the Tiagra one a year ago
And get this the 105, 11 speed rear mech is only £1 more....damn should stop reading these bike deals oO

Very good price. Just beware though - if your wheels are marked as 10 speed rather than 8, 9, 10 speed this won't fit. 10 speed have a step on the bottom of the spline - 8, 9, 10 are straight all the way down. If so, you'll need 105 or above. No idea why Shimano did this but found out the hard way!

Rubbish, I run a SAINT SS on a 40T 10x sp with, let me count them, '0' problems. Engineer, pffft...

Bully for you. You're the kind of person that puts people off trying to help others.

So people, don't listen to me, listen to mister knowitall who seems to have some serious attitude problem.

Agreed, engineers work to agreed specifications, "tinkerers" can please themselves with what they do, but they cannot recommend to all, that all combinations will work. I personally tinker, but I would never recommend to others what I personally do, just in case they had a bad accident due to my advice.
