Lindarets - Wolf Tooth Tanpan 10 &11 Speed

The Negotiator.

Crossing boundaries and breaking down walls: the Lindarets x Wolf Tooth Tanpan brings the range and security of Shimano mountain rear derailleurs to Shimano-equipped drop-bar bicycles.  This means greater gearing range for bigger adventures, better chain security for rough terrain, and lighter weight and reduced complexity for the daily commute.

In order to deliver these benefits, the Tanpan amplifies road shifter cable pull to allow for seamless communication with mountain derailleurs.  The result is ideal for riders looking to convert their road, gravel, cyclocross, or commuter bike to the simplicity and light weight of a single chainring- or for those whose riding demands lower gearing than a typical double can provide.  With the addition of a clutch-equipped Shadow+ rear derailleur, the Tanpan provides unparalleled chain security for Shimano road drivetrains.

The 17g Tanpan installs in moments, tucking neatly above the rear derailleur and an indexed barrel provides for quick and easy cable adjustment.  Each Tanpan is CNC machined in the USA by Wolf Tooth and comes fitted with precision stainless steel hardware and a sealed cartridge bearing.   


  • Compatible with most road, gravel and CX bikes.
  • Not Compatible with Tiagra 4700.
  • Important Note:  If the rear derailleur cable is routed internally through the chainstay and exits at the end of the chainstay above the axle or past the axle out the very end, you will need to use the Inline version.
  • The reason for this is that the Tanpan barrel adjuster end sits too close to the frame for the internally routed cable to exit the frame and enter the Tanpan barrel adjuster.
  • Inline Tanpan includes ferrule and takes place of barrel adjuster in 4mm cable housing.

  • Installation instructions here:  http://www.wolftoothcomponents.com/pages/tanpan-installation-instructions
  • Inline installation instructions: http://www.wolftoothcomponents.com/pages/tanpan-inline-mounting-instructions
  • Always adhere to manufacturer's published derailleur tooth capacity specifications.
  • 1.1mm diameter shift cable recommended and a new cable is always a good idea.
  • The Tanpan SH10 is compatible with ten-speed Shimano road shifters and optimized for ten-speed Shimano mountain derailleurs.
  • Eleven-speed Shimano mountain derailleurs may be used with only a slight decrease in shifting performance
  • The Tanpan SH11 is compatible with eleven-speed Shimano road shifters and optimized for eleven-speed Shimano mountain derailleurs (includes new Dura Ace 9100)
  • Ten-speed Shimano mountain derailleurs may be used with only a slight decrease in shifting performance
  • The Tanpan is designed to mount directly to adjuster-free cable stops on Shimano rear derailleurs.
  • SRAM 1x11 X-Actuation rear derailleurs may be used with a moderate decrease in shifting performance- and the resulting cable routing is not good.

I have it together with a Shimano shadow + sgs 10 speed derailleur and 10 speed Shimano dura ace barend shifters. Easy to install following the instructions. I have tried to make this components work togehter with other systems like the Jtek, was almost perfect. With the Wolf Tooth Tanpan i can see a diference, the shifting is perfect.
