Now you can have the chain security and range of your mountain bike on your Road or Cyclocross bike!
The Wolf Tooth Components Tanpan allows any bike running road style shifters to work with Shimano Shadow Plus Clutch type derailleurs. Designed in conjunction with the geniuses at Lindarets, the Tanpan works with Shimano drop bar road shifters and increase the amount of cable that is pulled per shift to suit mountain bike derailleurs. This is perfect for commuter, road, gravel or cyclocross bikes that want the simplicity of a single chainring, and the added benefits of possible increased range and chain security offered by clutch equipped Shimano derailleurs.The lightweight (17g) Tanpan is manufactured in house at Wolf Tooth's Minneapolis facility and is equipped with a quiet delrin roller running on sealed bearings. A CNC machined body, stainless steel bolt and an indexed barrel adjuster round out the top quality package.

The Tanpan comes in two versions,
The SH-10 is for 10 speed drivetrains and the SH-11 for 11 speed drivetrains. You can run a SH-10 on with an 11 speed derailleur or a SH-11 with a 10 speed derailleur with a minor decrease in performance. Running a Tanpan with a SRAM 1x11 X-Actuation derailleur will result in a moderate decrease in performance (and attrocious cable routing!)
