10 speed 105 rear derailleur - hen's teeth?

Postby nezumi » Fri Feb 16, 2018 10:38 am

I am trying to find a replacement rear derailleur for my 10 speed CX bike - 105, Ultegra, or even Tiagra.

I realise that 11 speed has been pretty well adopted now, but I am amazed at how few stores stock the 5700/6700 series derailleurs anymore - and the price when they do!

BikeInn - $43
Merlin - $54.25 (SS)
Evans - $54.25 (SS) / $60.30 (GS)
Wiggle - $74
CRC - $74
Pushys - $78
BikeBug - not stocked

Most painful of all is that, at many of these shops, the 5800 mech is cheaper!

Yep I hear you. I just bought a 10 speed Ultegra rear deraillure for $109.

The 11 speed equivalent can be had for $70 I think.

Might be a sign to upgrade to Ultegra DI2 6770.

I'm in a similar spot :)
Did you manage to find a med or long-cage Ultegra 10s derailleur? (mind if I ask - where from?)

that entails more than just a RD replacement :P :lol:

i've got 3 bikes all running 10speed components. upgrading one might eventually lead to another .. and another ... just a bottomless money pit for me :D

Front derailleur, rear derailleur, and all the other bits and pieces (junction boxes, battery, etc) Probably around $600 worth of bits and pieces :lol:

Caneye: I bought it off CRC for $109 for the short cage. Medium was slightly cheaper from memory! Should be arriving this week. Cell bikes I think had it for around the same price.

Kronos: That's an extra $500 i'm not willing to spend on a 9 year old bike :)

That's understandable. I'm thinking about doing it just because it would be an interesting project for my 10 year old bike, but it is more dollars than sense.

No, that's pretty well non-existant now. Mechanical 10-sp. is still around.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
