First Components 10 Speed Cassette Expander Cog

Go Big!

For those of us running 1x10 setups and looking for a wider gear range out of our cassettes, First Components throws another option into the ring. This cassette expander cog will turn your Shimano 11-36 XT or XTR cassette into an 11-42 allowing for a much lower climbing gear. This is accomplished by removing the 15T and 17t cog in your cassette, installing the expander cog and the 16T where your 15T and 17T came off. First Components kindly include a longer B-limit screw to allow your derailleur clearance to enter the 42T cog. Note: A longer chain will most likely be needed post installation. Go big and KEEP PEDALING!

Features

  • Material: Anodized AL7075 (42T), Stamped Chromoly (16T)
  • Teeth: 42T (+16T)
  • Compatible with Shimano XT M771 or XTR M980 11-36T cassettes Only (will not work with SLX or Deore Cassettes)
  • Weight: 96g (42T) +23g(16T)
  • Includes longer B-limit screw.

Couldn't make it work.
Great quality. I couldn't get this to work with my ten-speed cassette. The width of the cog prevented me from being able to thread the lock ring on the rear cassette even after removing the necessary cog. So I'm making due with a bike that is geared a little high.

Not the best, but it gets the job done for the price.
Took a little tinkering to get it to work, but once I got it set up it works fine. I installed on an XT 10 speed hub (M785 I think?), and it required washer behind the large cog. Without the washer it digs into the hub/spokes when you tighten the locking and then free hub won't spin, well... freely. I used a Shimano 10spd cassette washer (1mm I think). It worked, but it pushed the 11t cog a little higher off the free hub body than I would have liked. I think a .5mm cassette space would be the best, but I used what I had lying around. Three stars just cause of the extra time that went into making this part work. It was still a good deal, so it was worth the time spent, but I think it should either be machined properly to begin with, or they should provide the washer with the product.

Absolute garbage
U took a chance on this and what a mistake. Paired to a new chain, cassette and chainring it skipped so bad it was unusable. Spend the extra $20 and get a wolf tooth or on one.

Does not fit my Mavic hub. Chainring is recessed on hub side and shouldered on cassette side.

Works well, but must use a 1mm cassette spacer
I got this to work nicely with shimamo xt shadow +
But only after putting a 1mm spacer between this cog and the one next to it.
Cheaper than oneup which I could not get to work well.

First component exspader cog
This cog only will fit certain hubs it will touch the spokes on many wheels and if you add a spacer then all the other cogs
Won't fit so know your type hub and spacing before you order this .

I've been unable to mount the product, using no spacer the expander cog hits the spokes when tightened and with the spacer from the xt cassette you cannot get the lock ring on. Am I missing something? I'm going to track down a tiny spacer and see if it works but so far I am extremely unimpressed.

BEST ANSWER: You need a spacer to make it work. The spacer prevents cassette from rubbing. I took mine off and ordered the wolftooth components expander cog instead i am impressed with wolf tooths drop stop chainring so id rather have matching rear.
