    Garbaruk cassette

    Changing my XTR 10 sp cassette for a Garbaruk, almost the same weight for the shimano 11-36 as the 11-42 (lockring missing), also finally got the Schwalbe aerothan tube.

    Where did you get the tube? I was keen on it a while back, then it disappeared from the market.

    Ebay a while ago, from seller arif583, seems like he ran out of most sizes as I can only see 26er

    Has anyone actually used these tubes? I'm interested in how puncture resistant they are.

    How does the Garbaruk shift? I think you're the first person I've seen get a 10sp.

    Still don't know, I was going to change cassette, chain and chainring when noticed all the bushings of my Flux were toasted, don't have the replacement here, so I'm hoping they will be here soon thanks to Bobby at Turner

    I have an eleven speed 1048 with Shimano XTR. Shifts as well as the SRAM 1042 I had mounted before. Weight is 310.

    Did you also get the derailleur cage to go with it?
    Interested to know how this setup works.

    I did just to be on the safe side, but the XTR medium cage works perfect and I did not install it.

    I'm using 11 speed shimano with stock medium cage on sunrace 11-50 cassette & it shifts fine. chain length is as critical as b-tension, but it wasnt difficult to set up. I'd love the 1/2lb saving on a gabaruk cassette, just have trouble spending that much on a consumable part

    Thanks for the replies. I should have specified I'm using a 10-speed XT which wasn't originally designed for the extended range cassettes, which is the reason for inquiring.

    I'm using an XTR RD medium cage, the cassette included a derraileur cage, which was the same lenght as the one I have, so, I kept the original.

    AFAIK the replacement cage is for changing the position of the top jockey wheel,not the length of it

    Well, after a while I'm able to give first impressions of the performance, no problem with backward pedaling in any cog (I used a longer B tension bolt) most shifts are smooth, but...going from 20 to 17 is difficult, must go down to 15 and then back to 17, I'll try to fine tune it. Used the same medium xtr cage, same top jockey position.
