Wolf Tooth Roadlink

Wolf Tooth RoadLink

The Wolf Tooth RoadLink is the key to unlocking a plethora of additional gearing options for road, gravel, cyclocross, or commuter rigs. Many of us here at the shop have happily built up our own commuter and gravel bikes using mainly road parts with standard cross or road gearing. It isn’t until we go on a lunch ride in undulating Sycamore Canyon with our mountain biker coworkers that we quickly wish we had a giant cassette like theirs. With the Wolf Tooth RoadLink, now we can!

The RoadLink is a simple device that offsets the position of your Shimano road derailleur to make it possible to run a wide-range mountain bike style cassette that also serves as the perfect solution for converting road, cross, gravel and commuter bikes to a single ring set up with minimal loss of gear range. Now imagine running a standard 10 or 11 speed road/cross double ring set up with an 11-36T or 11-40T cassette. It’s safe to say you’ll experience steep climbs in a way like never before.

Applications:

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

Specifications:

  • Conceived and designed as a collaboration between Wolf Tooth and Lindaret
  • Manufactured in USA
  • Material - 6061 aluminum with stainless steel bolt
  • Weight - 17g

Compatibility:

  • 10s Cassette Compatibility:
    • 11-32: Not Required (medium cage rear derailleur 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 (medium cage rear derailleur 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 is compatible with ten- and eleven-speed Shimano road derailleurs and shifters.
  • The RoadLink mounts only to standard derailleur hangers.
  • Double chainrings are only supported with medium cage rear derailleurs
  • Triple chainrings are not supported (medium cage rear derailleurs cannot accommodate that big of a change)
  • Direct Mount-native frames and SRAM or Campagnolo drivetrains are not supported.
  • Due to the lack of a clutch mechanism on Shimano road derailleurs, secondary chain retention (front derailleur or chain device) may be needed, especially for rough- or off-road use.
  • Due to variations in derailleur 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 derailleur hangers don't meet the spec. You can file a bit of the bottom "tang" of those derailleur hangers to install the RoadLink

Expanded gear range
This was used on a Raleigh Tamland 2, which had 2 x 11 Shimano Ultegra gearing: 36/46t chainrings and an 11-32t cassette. The 36t chainring was changed to 34t, and the cassette was replaced with a Shimano XTR Cs-M9000 11-40t cassette. The RoadLink allowed the new cassette to work with the existing derailleurs, and provided a much lower low gear. A new (longer) chain was needed in order to accommodate the new cassette.

BEST USES: Upgrade, Road Biking

Excellent
This little piece of machined metal lets me run a short cage dura ace rear derailleur with a 11-36 cassette flawlessly. Super impressed with the shifting and how stiff this item is.

Great Product
Does exactly what it advertised. Install takes seconds, minus any derailleur adjustments and you're able to run a 40T cassette with a small cage road derailleur. Awesome.

Great little part
Using this with an 11-40 xtr cassette and my ultegra long arm rear derailleur, 11 speed. Works great. East to set up. Go for it. You will not regret it.

Worked for me
I used this to run an 11-36 cassette on my gravel bike. Simple to install and gave me the room necessary to run the bigger cassette (the old one was 11-32). I couldn't get the 11-36 to work with the same derailleur but as soon as I used this, no problems.

Wolflink
This component permitted me to use a 32 tooth rear gear with road components on my gravel bike without any adjustment avoiding the clicking present prior to installation.

Awesome Gravel Bike Accesory
Used to put an 11-40 cassette on my Diverge. Works great. It does get in the way slightly when removing the rear wheel. But this provides an actual usable gear ratio for gravel climbing and long steep road grades.

I have a 10 speed shimano 105 medium cage derailieur and 50/34 crankset. Will an 11-36 cassette be compatible if using with a double crankset? Thank you
Julian on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It work on my girlfriend bike with 39/46t chainring, a XT 11-36t cassette and a Shimano short cage 105 rear mech. It will work with your with your 34/50t. I’ve seen setup running even 11-40t cassette and short cage rear mech, but you have to more cautious with your gear selection.
