You been watching GCN Tech video from 6/11 Rik?
Never heard of these before, and then see it mentioned here, before I just watched the vid.

No I hadn't, but you've piqued my interest now I might check it out. No, my current gravel bike has a 28T on the back and I want to go bigger which means going to a long cage, and clutch would be nice as well.
So to keep my existing levers I need said widget for my plan to get off the ground.

Ordered - Thanks for the tip.

Does anyone know the difference between the 10spd and the 11spd, because all their documentation says either works in either situation but is a sub optimal manner.

Finally got around to fitting (along with new rims and drivetrain).

After struggling to dial the gears in I resorted to going back to the installation instruction re-pulley orientation. Then I noticed, and no mentioned in the instructions, the pulleys are now helpfully marked with an 'H', High and 'L', Low position, to make installation idiot-proof.

Out on the road, the gizmo works really well. I was worried it was going to effect the shifting, but shift are still really positive.

Running an SH11 on my gravel conversion.
11 spd Ultegra shifters, 11 spd XT cassette, Zee 10 spd rear mech, Rad cage, Goat Link.
Shifts REALLY well, smooth and light.
The chainline isn't the best for the 40t, so I've restricted it to the 36t and treat the 40t as a spoke protector :)
Can't get bigger than the 36t oval front ring on there :(

Interesting. I've just bought a gravel bike with one of these on it. 11-42 with 40 on the front running an SLX der with road shifters. I'm keen to replace with an SLX shifter and MTB levers. I assume this would be a relatively simple conversion but I'm also keen to put some wide bullhorns on it but can't find anything anywhere. I have real forearm/wrist issues on longer rides so keen for wide bullhorns for different ride positions as don't want to go down the moloko route. A bit off topic I know soz. Thoughs ?
