WOLFTOOTH Adapter RoadLink DM Aluminum
A small adapter with a big impact. With the Wolftooth Roadlink DM it is possible to drive a wide-range cassette with a wider transmission range with Shimano road bike derailleurs. The Roadlink is simply mounted between derailleur hanger and rear derailleur and so puts the rear derailleur in the required position. This prevents the upper pulley on the largest sprocket from being too close to the cassette. Particularly interesting is the road link for the conversion to 1-speed drive on cyclocross or racing bikes. With a wider translation on the cassette, the missing second chainring can be compensated. But even at two-compartment drives the Road Link for coping with extreme can angle en be useful to have a 11-36, 11-40 or 11-42 11- Cassette a life preserver at the wheel. You can also use a 10-42 SRAM XD cassette, but with a slightly worse shift quality!
NOTE: For 2-speed drives, at least a medium-length rear derailleur cage must be installed and in addition, the maximum capacity of the rear derailleur must be observed !!! The total capacity of the rear derailleur is NOT changed by the Roadlink DM!
