    Shimano OEM 10-Speed 11-42 Cassette

    So I notice that the new Deore ten-speed mountain group includes an 11-42 cassette. Does anyone know how well this will run with all the legacy SRAM and Shimano ten-speed shifter/derailleur gigs?

    It should run just fine, right?

    This could be a real problem solver for a lot of us running bandit 1x10.

    Totally agree on the goatlink for any 11-42 cassette, I have many of these 10-speed setups scattered through out family and friends and they work well. That new Deore cassette will most likely weigh a quite a bit though and it may be worth looking at the SunRace MX3 11-42.

    good catch with the cassette wasn't aware it's a 10 speed.

    the goat link is not a recommended solution to improve clearance for the upper pulley, better use a dedicated 2017 deore derailleur
