    Advice Please

    Hi Guys, just a spot of advice please. I'm currently running the Standard Spec on my 2010 Orange 5 Pro, and would like to upgrade the rear mech to a Shimano Shadow Plus. Just basically because the typical trails I ride tend to hammer the hell out of the rear mech, chain and front mech.

    my Question is, the Shimano Shadow means ill have to upgrade the cassette to a ten speed, also the chain and shifter respectively. Do I need to upgrade the front chain ring??

    if so, do you have any recommendations for this??. You thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated.

    Advice Please

    Well if you re currently running 9spd, I think they still make nine speed shadow type der. That would make it easiest to just swap a der out.

    If you go ten speed then yes, you will need der, cassette, chain, and shifter. Your current fry der and chainring may work fine with ten speed.
