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.
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.
