    Tom Shaffer sent me the reviews from pink bike on the new cassette from E13. Yes 44-9 11 speed cogs. Installation was easy and ingenious at the same time, very cool design. Runs on the xd driver. After installation I did not have to adjust the der. at all! You must run a long cage and make sure your chain is long enough. Mine was since I was replacing a 42-10 cassette.
    After 4 bash and hammer rides I can say this cassette is awesome! It is lighter than sram xo, shifts better and you can replace the top 3 cogs separately ! You can order it at the Hive for a mere 300.00! I dumped my 28t front chainring and put the 30t back on. Niiiiiiice!

    Sweet! And for you weight weenies (like me:sick:), it surprisingly only adds 45 grams compared to the xo1 10/42. Also available at Cambria Bikes.

    To be honest ( I try to do that on a regular basis:sneaky:),
    I simply do not have a problem with a 3X10 other than weight. I still am sporting the original front derailleur and shift cable from 2012.
    However, I am going to a 2X10 "soonly" and will probably throw on a 42 in the rear. I guess what I'm saying is, I can put 300 bones to good use in other places.
    Yowtch! Where do these manufacturers get off thinking we are made of that kinda money?

    What in the World?!?!?!?!?!?
    OneUp Components Goes 10-50T with its new Shark
    Hot on the heels of SRAM’s video statement that the front derailleur is dead, comes this announcement from OneUp Components that it’s making both a 50T hop-up kit for Shimano cassettes, and also combined 10-50T cassette (with input from Hope Technology) that will replace the freehub bodies on Hope, Stan’s and DT hubs to give a whopping 500% gear range with a single sprocket up front.

    OneUp-Components-50T-Shark-Sprocket-Grey-Assembled-M700-Front-966-600x600.jpg
    Even the second biggest sprocket is a 42T…

    OneUp-Components-50T-Shark-Sprocket-Green-Assembled-M700-Back-966-600x600.jpg
    Are your groaning knees happy now?

    OneUp already produces a 45T hop-up for Shimano’s 11-42T cassette, but it wants to go bigger! If you run a SRAM 10-42T cassette, the extra oomph available from that 10T is noticeable on road schleps and Alpine meadow blasts…

    OneUp-Components-Shark-Cage-Assembled-M700-RD-DOF1-900x600.jpg
    Jumping (with) the shark?

    OneUp says; “The OneUp Shark is a set of modular upgrades for Shimano 11 speed mountain cassettes. Extend the range of your stock Shimano 11-42T cassette by almost a third, by adding a 50T sprocket and cage kit, a 10T cluster or both. Shark allows you to build the perfect cassette for the trails that you ride.

    Shark 50T Sprocket and Cage Kit
    Increase your chainring size by four teeth, and still gain range on both ends of your cassette. This means a higher top speed, a better average chainline (you now spend more time in the middle of your cassette) and legs for days on your next backcountry epic. The converted 11-50T cassette is the widest range cassette available that uses a standard freehub body.

    The derailleur cage is to reposition the pulleys to work with such hugeness

    Shark 50T Sprocket Tech Specs:
    Cassette Progression: 11,13,15,18,21,24,28,32,37,42,50
    Sprocket Material: 7075-T6 Aluminum (50T), Nickel plated hardened steel (18T). Maintains the 42T as the smallest aluminum sprocket, preventing premature drivetrain wear. No major drivetrain manufacturer goes smaller than a 40T cassette sprocket in aluminum.

    Compatibility: XT M8000 11-42T cassettes (For Shimano 11-40 use the OneUp 45T sprocket)
    Freehub requirement: Standard freehub
    Cassette range improvement: 19%
    Colours: Grey or Green

    Shark Cage Tech Specs:
    Pulley Offset: 50% more than stock
    Compatibility: Shimano Shadow+ 11spd rear derailleurs
    Colours: Grey or Grey/Green

    Shark 50T Sprocket and Cage Kit MSRP: $125 USD

    OneUp 10-50T Cassette Cluster and MiniDriver
    Now, this is where things get even more interesting. OneUp has worked with Hope to develop a ‘non-proprietary, freehub body standard that accepts a 10T sprocket.’ – This is similar to the unified cassettes/drivers that Hope has been showing us for literally years and will hopefully actually make this year… This will allow OneUp to offer cassettes that will replace the cassette bodies on Hope, Stan’s and DT hubs with a new one that will fit a 10-50T cassette on an 11 speed system.

    This 10T micro cluster thing will fit on a special, shortened cassette body



    OneUp-Components-10T-Cluster-Assembled-M700-Front-966-600x600.jpg
    Does that amount of gearing appeal? Or are you worried about the jumps in the ratios…



    OneUp-Components-10T-Cluster-50T-Shark-M700-Cassette-966-600x600.jpg
    Start with a 10T and finish with a 50T – no more front mechs? Or are they wrong?



    OneUp again “OneUp has collaborated with Hope Technology to develop a non-proprietary, freehub body standard that accepts a 10T sprocket. This shortened version of a standard freehub is available for Hope, Stan’s and DT hubs with more coming soon. The MiniDriver open standard isn’t shrouded in patents, making the production of inexpensive 10T equipped cassettes a future possibility.”

    10T Cluster Tech Specs:
    Kit contains: 10-12 cluster, 14T and 15T
    Cassette Progression:
    – 10-12-14-17-19-21-24-27-31-35-40 (11-40 Shimano converted to 10-40)
    – 10-12-14-17-19-21-24-28-32-37-42 (11-42 Shimano converted to 10-42)
    – 10-12-15-18-21-24-27-31-25-40-45 (11-45 OneUp’d Shimano converted to 10-45)
    – 10-12-15-18-21-24-28-32-37-42-50 (11-50 OneUp’d Shimano converted to 10-50)
    Compatibility: Shimano 11-spd 11-40 and 11-42 cassettes and OneUp’d Shimano 11-45 and 11-50 cassettes
    Freehub requirement: OneUp MiniDriver (or compatible)
    Cassette range improvement: 10%
    Colour: Nickel Plated cluster with Green Lockring
    MSRP – $45

    “The 500% range of a Shark 10-50T cassette matches a typical 2×11 drivetrain, which should be enough to silence any remaining 2X hold outs.”

    Just think if you ran a double chainset too!

    MiniDriver Tech Specs:
    Length: 4.5mm shorter than a standard freehub
    Lockring Thread: M29
    OneUp DT star ratchet compatible MiniDriver MSRP – $40

    I am using the e-13 9-44 cassette also. The install unto XD body is unique to e-13. Very solid engineering.

    Been running the E13 on my ripley for a while and have over 2500 miles on it. Still running the same chain I installed when new too. Great product, shifts good, backpedals without chain drop and the added gearing is nice. Has a couple large gaps in gears that should be noticeable but aren't. Mine has developed a creaking noise a few times(as does the sram stuff) but it only takes a few minutes to pop it off and clean & re grease and all is good.
