First class Ultegra mech

From the first gear shift this new mechanism feels slick and precise. The way the mech is angled to do more of the work of going along the cassette is unlike anything i have used before. It makes it so light and effortless to change gear with far less friction created on the gear cable. The way it looks when the chain is mid cassette is awesome with the chain running parallel, the mech being suitably extended and compliments the bike. It really does complete the drivetrain, especially as part of an upgrade. I like the cable end being hidden beside the wheel instead and the angle of the outer cable to reach it from the frame. Even the jockey wheels have aero touches like fan blades, a sweet touch. As a small note, make sure you have a star shaped tool to adjust the mech as it doesnt use conventional screw driver heads or allen keys, so regular EMT tools wont be able to adjust it on the road.

Derailleur/Mech Guide

What are derailleurs and mechs?

Derailleurs and mechs are two names for the same thing – the parts of your drive train that move the chain between chainrings for the front derailleur/mech and between the cassette cogs for the rear derailleur/mech.

Who needs a derailleur or mech?

Not all bikes have derailleurs, but if your bike has conventional gearing rather than singlespeed or hub gears, you will have at least a rear derailleur. These parts are exposed and somewhat vulnerable to damage, so you may need to replace them if this happens.

What are the choices?

Your choice will largely depend on what is compatible with the rest of your drivetrain, but there are different options for road and mountain bike, by the big three manufacturers, Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo.

What should I buy with them?

If you’re replacing a front or rear mech, you may need to replace some other parts of your drivetrain as well, for compatibility or because you want them to wear together. These might include the chainrings, rear cassette or chain.

Anything else?

It’s not just compatibility with your other components you need to consider with a mech replacement. Derailleurs also have different fittings for various frame compatibilities, including braze-on fittings and a bolt-on collar.
