    Question 10 Speed Cassette Install on 11 Speed Hub

    Replacing and Installing a new Shimano 10 speed cassette (CS-6700 11X28) on my Williams Cycling 11 speed hub. Running a 10 speed group and always have on this bike.

    Can't recall the spacer configuration and can't find the Williams manual online since they are no longer in business. Looked on Youtube but can't seem to find a video that matches this install situation.

    Any advice or recommended videos appreciated.

    You need a 1.85mm spacer plus the one that comes with the 6700 cassette.

    Thanks Jay Strongbow. Now I gotta figure out how to adjust the derailleur, etc.

    Undo the cable before making any possible limit screw adjustments. It's dead easy, just give it some thought.

    Thanks for the tip cxwrench. Adjustments complete but now my shifter seems really stiff, in that its very difficult to shift/click. The cables and housings were replaced in February by LBS, so I don't think that's the issue. What did I do wrong when making gear adjustments? The shifting seems fine, except for the stiff/difficult shifter.

    Try shifting by just pulling on the cable between the shifter and the derailleur. If that works easily, then there must be an issue in the shifter or the casing between the casing stop and the shifter. If pulling on the cable requires a lot of force, then you know where to focus your search for the cause.

    Thanks Kerry that tip helped for sure. Turns out the shifter internal mechanism had dried out/and/or /was sticking. Puts some Phil’s grease in there where the parts rub and now shifts real smooth. All good.

    Nice...you are now experienced in the Shimano 'overhaul'. Their shifters rarely break, but they get 'sticky' very often. The grease used in the original assembly gets waxy and sticks the ratchet at some point, now you know how to fix it.

    For a more thorough fix, try flushing the shifter with solvent (WD-40 is a popular choice) while shifting through the gears repeatedly. All the gunk that comes out will tell you how much things needed cleaning. Once your flush slurry comes out relatively clean, let it dry and then add lube. Lots of people use heavy oil (like 90w gear lube) or even light oil rather than grease. I'm a grease plus oil guy. I think that grease only is more likely to get stiff again soon.
