Direto with an 8 speed cassette

Postby posixPilot » Thu Oct 12, 2017 7:42 pm

Hi,

I have a road bike with an 8 speed Shimano cassette, and I'm looking at purchasing the Direto trainer. I see that the specs for the Direto say that Shimano cassettes with 9/10/11 speeds are supported. Can I use my 8 speed cassette with the Direto? My bike shop owner thinks that I should be able to add additional spacers behind the cassette to make it work.

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike

We are officially compatible only with 9, 10 and 11 speed.
In theory, using some spacers you could be able to install also a 8 speed cassette but we cannot guarantee that this combination will work properly.
Ask your trusted mechanic and give it a try, in the worst case the gear won't change well ;)

Thanks for the feedback! I think I'll give it a shot.
