Hi,

Since Shimano don't produce 12-27 sprokets anymore, I was advised to buy a Sram 12-27 sproket, which is compatible with the Shimano body.

But can you please tell me whether the Shimano Ultegra chain would be compatible and if it would be as smooth as on the Ultegra sproket ?

Thanks !

Vince

My SRAM 1090 cassette seems louder than my Ultegra cassette (on the same bike), but it shifts just as crisply.

Sram 1070s are not as loud as 1090s. They don't shift quite as well as Shimano cassettes but you'd have to be really picky to notice.
