Capture.PNG  shifters.PNG Campy Centaur 10 speed shifters, Record F. derailleur, Centaur rear.

Sram/Quarq crank 48/38 with Ritchey big ring or Rotor compact crank 48/34.

Campy chain and Sram 11-32 cassette.  Campy derailleur only supposed to work up to 27 cog - wrong.

Jtek shiftmate eliminates the need for Campy freehub wheels and works pretty darn good.  

I was running 32mm Gravel King slicks all year.

Suntour Barcons shift Shimano Deore XT derailleurs. A Suguno 48, 36 & 26 crankset combined with a 13-24 seven speed freewheel. Old-school, but effective;

Regarding the Wolf Roadlink, on their site it states that the front chain rings need to be within 14 teeth of each other, and like you, I'm looking at doing the 50/34 with an 11-36, have you noticed any issues with this set up? Currently the bike is being spec'd with 11-32, but I worry for loaded up gravel climbs, that may not be enough gearing. Just want to see how this system is working with Di2? 

Thanks

No issues with the shifting with the 50/34. Pretty sure the reason the reason for the claimed 14 tooth limit is chain tension. To get the chain long enough for a 50frt - 36 rear combination, it is a little slack when in a 34 - 11 combo. I have no reason to be in either a 50-36 or 34-11 combo, but I'd rather have extra slack in the chain when I accidentally go in the 34-11 than rip the derailleur off when I screw up and go in the 50-36.

Perfect, I will have the shop throw one of these into the mix and pick up an 11-36. Thanks for the information!

Replaced the Shimano 11-32 cassette on my Felt V-85 with a SRAM 11-36 using the Wolftooth link.  Works smoothly. Wish I could find a 12-36 (other than the IRD) to tighten up the spacing... Never use the 11 tooth sprocket, anyway.

My Origin8 Monstercross bike has a 3x9 drivetrain with a Shimano Deore “Trekking” crank-set with 48, 36 and 22t chainrings. This is matched to a 12-27 nine speed cassette. Tiagra STI “brifters” and a front derailleur for triple were installed. A Deore SGS rear derailleur completes the drivetrain. It provides a 23 to 112 gear-inch range with close gear cog spacing. The 36 chainring is ideal from 8mph to 24mph.

Shimano 105 5800 2x11 speed drivetrain on a Raleigh Roker Comp. The crankset is a Shimano CX50, the 36 inner chainring has been replaced with a TA 33t. The 11-32 cassette has been replaced with a Sram PG-1130 11-36. I was able to change the chainring and cassette without any other modifications.
