Please note, GoatLink's are for very specific Shimano mountain bike derailleurs ONLY! To use Road derailleurs with wide range cassettes you'll need the RoadLink - click here --> Wolf Tooth Road Link
The Lindarets/Wolf Tooth GoatLink is simply the fastest route to improved wear and long-term shifting performance on wide-range 1x10 drivetrains using the Shimano Shadow+ Rear derailleurs. The GoatLink re-positions 10 speed Shimano Shadow+ Rear derailleurs to the optimal location when using a Wide Range Cassette or Range Extender Sprocket.
The GoatLink is optimized for use with Wolf Tooth’s 40 and 42 tooth extender sprockets and also with any 11-40t or 11-42t ten-speed wide range cassette or expander sprocket.
You will NEVER need a longer b-screw with the GoatLink
Stainless Steel mounting hardware included
Manufactured in Minnesota, USA

Compatible Shimano Shadow+ 10 speed rear derailleurs that have a Direct Mount link (including spacer, if so equipped) or B-pivot knuckle with a thickness of 7.9-8.1mm. Shimano changed to this sometime in 2013. Very early Shadow+ rear derailleurs have a thinner link and are not compatible. Here is how to take that measurement:
Direct Mount-native frames and SRAM rear derailleurs are not supported.
*Due to variations in derailleur hanger geometry, chainstay length, chainring size, B-screw adjustment, and suspension configuration, individual results will vary slightly.
