Lindarets - Wolf Tooth RoadLink Derailleur Hanger

The RoadLink™ dérailleur hanger extension is a unique patent-pending device that offsets the position of your 10 and 11 speed road dérailleur to make it possible to run a wide-range mountain bike style cassette.

It is an ideal solution for riders looking to convert their road, gravel, cyclocross, or commuter drivetrain bike to attain the simplicity and reduced weight of a single front chainring but without giving up the gear range of a double. It is also great for riders with double chainring bikes that want lower gearing for those ultra steep climbs. It does not compromise the shifting in the smaller cogs of the cassette but yet it enables the derailleur to work with as large as a 40T cassette.

For more Technical details on the RoadLink™, checkout the RoadLink Tech Page.

The RoadLink™ is optimized for use with ten or eleven-speed 11-36t and 11-40t cassettes and works great with Wolf Tooth’s 40-tooth GC cassette extenders and Drop-Stop chainrings. The RoadLink™ RD adaper installs in minutes, is optimized around Shimano ten- or eleven-speed road dérailleurs and shifters, but works well with SRAM and Campy too. It can be used with single or double chainrings. Here is a list of recommended applications:

  • Single Chainring:
    • Road
    • Cyclocross
    • Commuting
    • Drop-bar mountain
  • Double Chainring:
    • Road
    • Touring
    • Drop-bar mountain

Compatibility:

  • 10 & 11 Speed
  • 10s Cassette Compatibility:
  • 11-32: Not Required (GS medium cage rear dérailleur works) 
  • 11-34: Single or Double Chainring
  • 11-36: Single or Double Chainring
  • 11-40: Single or Double Chainring (front rings can be no more than 14 teeth different e.g. 48-34)
  • 11-42: Not Supported
  • 11s Cassette Compatibility:
  • 11-32: Not Required (GS medium cage rear dérailleur works)
  • 11-36: Single or Double Chainring
  • 11-40: Single or Double Chainring (front rings can be no more than 14 teeth different e.g. 48-34)
  • 11-42: Not Supported
  • 10-42: Not Supported

  • The RoadLink™ mounts only to standard dérailleur hangers.
  • The RoadLink™ is optimized for the 10 and 11 speed Shimano road dérailleur geometry.  It also works very well with 9 speed road groups, all SRAM groups, and Campy dérailleurs! One note is that with Campy it works best with cassettes up to 11-36.
  • SRAMs Exact Actuation road shifters (10s and 11s) are interchangeable with their Exact Actuation mountain dérailleurs- which can easily handle a 36 or 40 (and, for one-by, are available with a clutch)- and the CX1 will go even bigger with a single 'ring. If you already have SRAM, they also make nice front brake-only levers that match their rear shifters too. 
  • Double chainrings are only supported with GS (medium cage) rear dérailleurs.
  • Triple chainrings are not supported (medium cage rear dérailleurs cannot accommodate that big of a change).
  • Direct Mount-native frames are not supported. 
  • Due to the lack of a clutch mechanism on Shimano road dérailleurs, secondary chain retention (front dérailleur or chain device) may be needed, especially for rough- or off-road use.
  • Due to variations in dérailleur hanger geometry, chainstay length, chainring size, B-screw adjustment, and suspension configuration, individual results will vary.
  • This 7.9mm max dimension is controlled by the Shimano spec, but a few dérailleur hangers don't meet the spec. You can file a bit of the bottom "tang" of those dérailleur hangers to install the RoadLink™.

Used on a Shimano 105 5800 group set. Short cage, 50/34 up front with a SLX 11-40t cassette. 1 or 2 extra links in the chain cant quite remember. Works fine, just make sure you never change into the two big rings. But why would you anyway.

Easy to fit, gives you the option to have a couple big granny gears for when your totally dead in the legs.

34-40 is a stupidly easy gear, but with bags on the bike and 150 miles in the legs, it makes sense.

I can confirm that the Road Link works perfectly well with a SRAM setup. I had been using an X7 MTB rear mech with a 12-36 10 speed cassette (SRAM MTB mechs are compatible with road levers). When I needed to replace the mech, instead of a direct replacement I decided to try the Road Link with a Rival road mech that I happened to have. I've been running this setup now for several thousand km and it has performed without any issues at all. Very satisfied.
