Wolf Tooth Goatlink 10Speed

Lindarets x Wolf Tooth GoatLink

The Lindarets x Wolf Tooth GoatLink is simply the fastest route to improved wear and long-term shifting performance on wide-range one-by-ten drivetrains.

Conceived by Lindarets and developed with Wolf Tooth Components, the GoatLink improves chain wrap and reduces premature shifting degradation by replacing the Direct Mount link from compatible Shimano ten-speed rear derailleurs. We manufacture all the GoatLinks right in our Minnesota machine shops where our other products are made.

The US-made GoatLink installs in moments with little more than a 5mm Allen wrench. In most cases, the stock link can be removed and the GoatLink installed without the need for chain removal or additional cable or housing.

The GoatLink is optimized for use with Wolf Tooth’s 40- and 42-tooth Giant Cogs and all sizes of Drop-Stop chainrings- but will work with any 11-40t or 11-42t ten-speed cassette. The GoatLink is compatible with 2013 or later Shimano ten-speed Shadow+ rear derailleurs that make use of the 8mm Direct Mount intermediate link to mount to standard derailleur hangers. Direct Mount-native frames and SRAM rear derailleurs are not supported.

Chain Wrap at 11t:

  • 40t: Improved by 69%
  • 42t: Improved by 53%

Free Chain at 11t:

  • 40t: Improved by 25%
  • 42t: Improved by 19%

Note: Due to variations in derailleur hanger geometry, chainstay length, chainring size, B-screw adjustment, and suspension configuration, individual results will vary. You will NEVER need a longer B-screw when using a GoatLink!

Didn't help at all
Bought this to fix shifting problems with a 1x10 setup using an XTR Shadow Plus derailleur and Wolftooth 42T cog. It didn't make any difference. Shifts were still slow and inconsistent. I was about to give up on the Wolftooth cog, but found the Oneup RADr cage and thought I would give it one last attempt. The RADr cage worked. Shifts are now quick and crisp. I did leave the Goatlink on so I am running that and the RADr cage at the same time. I can't comment on whether the RADr cage would have worked by itself, but I can say that the Goatlink did not. Even though it does have a cool name and attractive design.

PROS: Easy To Install, Attractive Design, Cool Name

CONS: Doesn't work, Doesn't Worm

Coupled with Wolftooth GC40 and ZEE wide ratio rear dérailleur greatly improves shifting.

Works well!
Alright so...I have no frame of reference because I didn't ride with the stock link at all but...right out of the gate, with this installed on an xt 10 speed derailleur and a 42T Wolftooth Cog, shifting was flawless. Also, the stock B-tension screw did not need to be replaced. In summary, this thing appeared to make the XT derailleur work with 42T cog and make the shifting feel no different than stock.

Great product so far
Great product if upgrading to a higher tooth cassette and the longer b screw isn't working for you.

Goat Link Saves the Day!
I was not able to get my XT shadow plus derailleur to shift properly with a 42t rear and 32T front. I even went the cheaper route and tried a longer B screw, but failed to shift right. So I bought this and used the shorter original B screw and it shifted like it should. Would recommend if you're having problems shifting on a larger cog cassette or granny gear.

Good addition to the goatlink cog.
This is great at repositioning the rear derailleur so everything works with the goatlink 42 tooth cog on my bike. No problems.
Assembled on the bike.

1x10 conversion
Used Sunrace mx3 11x42 cassette, wolf tooth 30t NW ring, & Wolf tooth goat link to convert sons 2x10.
He is really happy to have simpler system even though he lost some low range (no more dropping chain during races).
He has to be careful with derailleur because it seems to bend the hanger more easily because of longer lever arm.

I have a 1x10 setup, Wolftooth 30t crank and 11t-36t Shimano XT cassette using a Shimano 10speed XT Shadow rear derailleur. Would I benefit from this link or is it unnecessary?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You would only benefit from this link if you converted your 1x10 from 11t-36t to 11t-42t. The Goatlink would essentially do what a b-screw would do. The stock shimano b-screw isn't long enough to give you clearance for a 42t cog. Instead of getting a longer b-screw, you can use the Goatlink. Of course you would still need to adjust the b-screw to get the proper shifting.
