Shimano technical compatibility

Shimano 6 to 9 speed

All Shimano 6, 7, 8 & 9 speed rear derailleurs (RDs) move 1.7mm sideways for each 1mm of cable movement - a 'shift ratio' of 1.7. Therefore all 6, 7, 8 & 9 speed RDs will work with any 6, 7, 8 or 9 speed shifter, whether STI or trigger.

LaVita keep good stock of a 32 tooth RD that is 1.7 and therefore compatible with all Shimano 6 to 9 speed road & MTB shifters.

LaVita supply Road shifters in 7, 8 & 9 speeds for compatibility with Shimano RDs.


Shimano 10 speed Road RD speed NOT Tiagra 4700 RD

Apart from the (Tiagra) 4700 RD, 10 speed Road also uses a shift ratio of 1.7 so 6-9 speed derailleurs are compatible.
