Tell me, who's done it!
I apologize right now, I've have a drink or two. Hic :lol:

Right lets get to it!
From what I've read, the cassette is one spacer and one gear sprocket wider that the 10 speed cassette. (well not read, but supposed as the 40 or 42 sprocket takes up the space in the dishing of the wheel. Please correct me).
So if the above is correct, would a 10 speed cassette (11-36) plus an extender (such as a hope or one up) give me a similar range as the 11 speed xtr cassette?
Now if the above is correct (probably not), The current 10 speed xtr, xt, ls, deore mech (+extender), with the 11 speed xtr shifter should work. :?

What do you think?

Please be gentle :lol:

Been there, done that :D

Can be done, with no issues, as it just requires a modified shifter (Zee comes to mind), and a modified cassette.
I ended up opting for a 9sp with 10sp spacing, as that did the trick, and offered the best shifting.

You can find my custom cassette here at HuckingKitty, pics and all.

Hic!

I suppose that now sram make a 11-36 11speed cassette, how long will it be before someone adds a 40t or 42t range extender to that?

Thanks Magura for pointing out your custom cassette. Looks interesting, are you still running it or have you swapped it out for a more of a conventional setup?

I'm still running the 9sp with 10sp spacing.
It works rather well. I have considered upping it back up to 10sp, but failed to pull myself together to do so.
9sp does the trick, and with 10sp spacing the shifting is real smooth.

My trike may end up with 11sp though, but as the my machine shop is at my place in Denmark, and the trike is at my place in Switzerland, I tend to shy away from making all that many spooky parts for it, as fixing it without the machine shop at hand, is a true pain.

Well in my quest of getting 11 speed on the cheap, I've come across this site http://blog.artscyclery.com/science-behind-the-magic/science-behind-the-magic-drivetrain-compatibility/
It's not exactly DIY, but it's mix and match.
I believe, I can use a shimano 10 speed rear mech with an 11 speed cassette and a sram X1 11 speed shifter.
As I already have a Zee mech, I'm waiting for an XT level cassette. X1 shifter is less than £50.
So could be a considerable saving over a complete 11 speed setup. If it works..

That's not a bad idea.
Let me know how it works out.

So, you need to travel all the way to Switzerland just to ride your trike?
Why don't you just ride it back to Denmark?
