Will This Run On A Ten Speed Set Up Ok?
02 Apr 2017
I have a 105 ten speed triple and wish to change the rear cassette ( 11-40) will the 11speed derailleur run as a 10speed ok with a jtec 6 on??

Unfortunately this will not work with a 10spd set up, the jumps between the gears are not even on an 11spd system so cannot be used with any other gearing i'm afraid.

11Speed Sti + 11Speed Mtb Rd + 11/40 Cassette + Jtek Shiftmate
25 Apr 2016
I have 11 speed 105 road STI levers and a compact chainset and I want to use something like a 11/40 cassette.
Can I use a JTEK Shiftmate 8 with this M8000 MTB rear derailleur?
If not, do you have a suggestion for a compatible RD.

The ShiftMate 8 was designed exactly for this. It will allow you to use your 11spd 105 levers with an M8000 rear derailleur and 11-40t cassette.
