What ultegra di2 rear deraileur will work with an 11 speed 11-28 cassette long or short cage


The short cage would would up to a 28 tooth but it might be a bit sloppy. I would suggest moving up to the long cage to give yourself a bit more flexability as far as gear ratios is concerned in the rear.

My shimano ultegra left shifter is super stiff/hard to push in; what is going on?


Try flushing out the shifter(s) with WD-40, use plenty. The next step will be replacing the shift cables and cable housings.
  • Take the bicycle in an area free of cars and obstacles, such as an open parking lot. Concentration is required when learning to use Ultegra shifters or any other type of bicycle shifter.
  • 2 Mount the bicycle and rest both hands on the proper Ultegra hand control. The left-hand control operates the front derailleur. The right-hand control operates the rear derailleur.
  • 3 Start pedaling, smoothly and evenly. While pedaling is crucial to propelling the bicycle forward, it is also necessary when shifting the derailleur. Pedaling forces the chain to rotate. The chain must rotate before it can transfer to another gear.
  • 4 Push the outside right Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The rear derailleur will shift the chain to a smaller rear gear.
  • 5 Push the inside right Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The rear derailleur will shift the chain to a larger rear gear.
Rear Ultegra Derailleur Control
  • 1 Push the outside left Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The front derailleur will shift the chain to larger front gear.
  • 2 Push the inside left Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The front derailleur will shift the chain to a smaller front gear.
  • 3 Use the front and rear Ultregra hand controls interchangeably. For small changes in gearing, using the rear control. For larger changes, choose the front control. A smaller gear causes the bicycle to travel a shorter distance per pedal stroke but also requires less energy to use. A larger gear requires greater effort but in turn causes the bicycle to travel farther per pedal stroke.

I have an Ultegra RD6600 and CS5600 (12/25T) on my new Look bike. I'd like to put a CS6700 11/28T on it for better gearing for the steep climbs around here. Apparently the CS6700 11/28T required the...


Derailleurs -

The RD6600 will only handle a 27T gear so no to 11/28.
The RD6700 will handle the 28T gear so yes to 11/28

Shiftlever -

The ST6600 will work fine with the RD6700.
The ST7900 should only be used with other 7900 products (Dura-ace for Dura-ace) it will work but not as nice.

There is no need to change your shiftlevers.

The ST7900 is almost fully compatible, in that any Shimano Derailleur will work with any Shimano Shift lever, However the ST7900 has a slightly different shifting pattern and the shift levers should only be used with other 7900 products to get the best performance.

Side note - If you are using standard cranks now, you could keep your shifting in tact and change your cranks to compacts and get lower gear ratios than moving to the 28T for a similar price to Rear derailleur/ cassette and chain plus labor. This is a common change in my shop.

What type of grease should i use when installing Ultegra BB6700 to a titanium frame?


You can use standard lithium grease just as you would on any of the threaded parts of the bike or best is too use Anti-Sieze (available at automotive parts stores).

Hi Everyone! I have a Shimano 5603 Hollowtech 2 triple chainring.......(10 Speed) I want to add a Utlegra 6600 front derailleur and Ultegra 6600 rear derailleur. Also 10 speed cassette, Ultegra...


No -

If you are going to use the front triple crankset, then you need to use the 6603 components. These are for Triple set-ups.

If you intend to keep your bike a triple, then everything in the drivetrain must be the triple designation, hence the XX03.

If you want to change the crankset to a compact, then you can use the 6600 (double) equipment, but you will need to change the left (front shifter) to a double as well. The compact crankset, will give you virtually the same range as the triple and be much lighter and shift better.

The cassette: You can use any 10 spd cassette from Shimano or SRAM as long as the rear cog is no larger than 27. if you want to use a larger cog like a 28, then you will have to use the 6700 group, assuming yoiu want to stay with shimano ultegra.

Final Note: Since you are chainging everything, you may want to consider the SRAM Apex group, this gives you more gear ratio than the Ultegra, is slightly less expensive and around the same weight. Great alternative to Triple bikes.

Parts you will need to convert:
Rear Derailleur
Front Derailleur (if changing to compact double or Apex)
Chain
Shifter set (if Apex)
Crankset (if Apex or compact shimano)
Bottom Bracket (if Apex)

The biggest thing is that Shifters and rear derailleur must be from the same company (shimano, SRAM, etc.) after that just make sure that yoiu use 10spd with 10spd, 9 with 9, and so on. Everything else can mix and match.

Ultegra Flight Deck shifter problem


My guess is the shift cable has slipped, only allowing you the top end of the rachet positions. Drop the shifter to the very lowest cog, make sure the cable is tight, and adjust the tension at the derailleur so that on the first single click it climbs one gear, and isn't noisy there. More tension 9 winding the barel out ) causes it to rise, less, to drop down. It should then hopefully select all the gears, unless the upper stop, the L screw is set too low. This screw stops the derailleur hitting the spokes and going past 1st gear. That shouldn't ever change though.
