Wolf Tooth Components RoadLink


 Put simply - RoadLink allows you to run a much wider range cassette than would normally be possible on your cyclocross/road/gravel bike. It's ideal for riders who want to switch to the simplicity of a single front chainring, without giving up the gear range a double provides. Also great for riders who want to keep double chainrings but enjoy ultra-low gearing for very steep climbs. 

This patent-pending device i optimized for use with ten or eleven speed cassettes in 11-36t or 11-40t ranges. Note that RoadLink is optimized for Shimano rear derailleurs, but works with SRAM and Campagnolo (only up to 36 for Campy please) too. 

RECOMMENDED APPLICATIONS: 

  • Single Chainring:
    • Road
    • Cyclocross
    • Commuting
    • Drop-bar mountain
  • Double Chainring:
    • Road
    • Touring
    • Drop-bar mountain

COMPATIBILITY:

  • 10s Cassette Compatibility:
    • 11-32: Not Required (GS medium cage rear derailleur works) 
    • 11-34: Single or Double Chainring
    • 11-36: Single or Double Chainring
    • 11-40: Single or Double Chainring (front rings can be no more than 14 teeth different e.g. 48-34)
    • 11-42: Not Supported
  • 11s Cassette Compatibility:
    • 11-32: Not Required (GS medium cage rear derailleur works)
    • 11-36: Single or Double Chainring
    • 11-40: Single or Double Chainring (front rings can be no more than 14 teeth different e.g. 48-34)
    • 11-42: Not Supported
    • 10-42: Not Supported
  • The RoadLink mounts only to standard derailleur hangers - won't work if you have a direct mount rear derailleur
  • Double chainrings are only supported with GS (medium cage) rear derailleurs
  • Triple chainrings are not supported (medium cage rear derailleurs cannot accommodate that big of a change)
  • 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.
  • This 7.9mm max dimension is controlled by the Shimano spec, but a few derailleur hangers don't meet the spec. You can file a bit of the bottom "tang" of those derailleur hangers to install the RoadLink
