its called the RoadLink.

interestingly enough, it looks like what the newer 9100 or 9150 looks like with the extended hanger mount.


You will run into compatibility issues...

11s Cassette Compatibility:
11-32: Not Required (GS medium cage rear derailleur works)
11-36: Single or Double Chainring (front rings can be no more than 14 teeth different e.g. 48-34)
11-40: Single or Double Chainring (front rings can be no more than 10 teeth different e.g. 46-36)


It works great on 1 X Shimano set ups for gravel/cross.

maybe it'll work with a 11-34T and only a 16 teeth difference. then a 52/36T would work?

Road link definitely works with 9070 11-32 (SRAM cassette).

However, I have a Ceramicspeed OSPW and not expecting to work like OEM. LOL.
