    Thanks. You saved me from an impulse purchase. Looking for a derailleur with a clutch that will work with Ultegra shifters...(long cage)

    That’s really close, but it is a Medium cage. Looks like the GRX fits the bill if it is compatible. ETA is not until August, though.

    I believe Wolftooth make a tanpan ratio pully to allow this.
    Good luck

    Pretty sure this is the case...I think they're about $45.00.

    I've used the TanPan in the past. It's a nifty gadget that does what it says on the tin. It's a bit fidgety to install, especially if you aren't enthused about doing your own wrenching.

    It probably goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway. Don't expect silky smooth shifting with the Tanpan in your cable path.

    Shimano complicated compatibility between road and mountain drivetrains after their mountain drivetrains went to 10-speed and their road drivetrains went to 11-speed. Pull ratios were changed.

    Shimano 8-9-10 speed road drivetrains and 8-9 mountain drivetrains have the same pull ratios.

    In theory, the longer pull ratios of the newer groups make shifting more accurate. It would have been nice if they had changed them both at the same time and to the same pull ratio, but no.

    This.

    I have a Tanpan that marries a Shimano 10spd (DA-7900) shifter to a Shimano 10spd Shadow rear derailleur. My experience is that if I set it up so shifting is smooth and precise from largest cog down to next-to smallest cog. However, shifting down to the smallest cog is a hit-or-miss. Half the time it will not shift to the smallest cog, half the time it will.

    But if I adjust the the rear derailleur (by relaxing tension) so that chain shifts into the smallest cog every time, then shifting action in the bigger cogs are not smooth. So I choose to adjust shifting for the bigger cogs and will live with it when it can't shift into the smallest cog since most of time I'll be using the bigger cogs anyway.
