Shifters...(2 posts)

Shifters...Upgrader??
Mar 29, 2001 3:35 PM
If I have Shimano Sora rear deraillur and I buy Ulterega shifters, crank, f. deraillur , and bb will the 9 speed shifters work with the 8 speed Sora? I do not have money to buy new cassettte and rear deraillur.

Thanks,

Dude

The ultegra shifters will work fine with the sora rear hub and derailleur but you don't have a choice on the cassette. You'll get maybe 5 working gears out of the eight if you try to use the 9 sp shifters. You're better off skipping the ultegra front derailleur and going for the 9 speed cassette from the 105 or tiagra? group. TTFN
