Swapping Tiagra 12-28 for Ultegra 6700 12-30

Swapping Tiagra 12-28 for Ultegra 6700 12-30

Postby puddy69 » Sat Jan 11, 2014 12:47 pm

I was looking at swapping out my Tiagra 12-28 cassette for the Ultegra 12-30 , Wiggle have advised it can't be done with my RD Shimano 5701 , but checking the Shimano specs it says if I am reading right it can take up to 30t.
Reason for swap is that majority of riding is climbing .
Cheers

It will work just fine. Make sure the chain will have enough slack to take the bigger cassette.

Thanks I will probably buy a new chain as well when ordering the cassette.

I have regularly swapped 11 - 23 11-25 11-28 12-30 on ultegra 6700, no problems at all. New chain for each cassette though. keep the old one with the old cassette in a plastic bag in your kit.
