Shimergo set-up

Postby Steve » 21 Jan 2017, 5:23pm

Apologies for being too lazy to search for previous posts on this.
I'm refitting my newly serviced RH 10 speed Ergo lever which I use with an 8 speed Shimano cassette.
Now, should I have the 2 "spare" clicks at the inner or outer end of the cassette, or perhaps 1 at either end? Does it matter at all?

I would suggest that the lever would start on the outer small cog and then click up to the largest and you would restrict the derailleur from going any further so you will not be able to access the spare clicks. If you do it the other way you will be able to access two more clicks on the way down to the small top gear cog and would then have to click up the two spare clicks before the third would start moving the derailleur. one click being one gear change.
Hope that is reasonably clear as changing down to the smaller cog is actually changing up a gear and changing up the cassette to the larger ring is actually changing down a gear.
Or just buy a campag 10 speed derailleur and a cassette with shimano splines and campag spacing.

2 clicks at the inner end. Mine has worked for years like that.
There's no such thing as a tailwind.
It's either a headwind, or you're going well.
