Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the Job Got this to keep my winter bike on the road after i smashed my existing derailleur. For the price and convenience it was absolutely perfect. 31 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not bad It works perfect for a 1 year on my mtb bike with 11-32 cassete and mtb shifter 18 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Replacement This was a replacement for my wife's road bike, good price for what is a standard 9 speed read mech 22 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheap and does exactly what it's meant to do Needed a replacement for my worn out tiagra 9speed on my roadie, bought this, does what it's supposed to do, typical shimano quality. A little on the heavy side, but that's what you would expect at this price, 01 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by you want a cheap dowhill mech? this is worth a look. I was after a cheap rear mech for my 1x9 downhill bike, so I gave this a try because it`s rated up to a 32 tooth big cog. Works really well with my xt shifter, clicks into gear simply and effectively and it handles my 11-32 cassette with no issues at all. most importantly though, its not that fragile. ive had a couple of big offs with it and its got a scrape down it which proves its taken at least one of those hits full on and its come through the ordeal with flying colours. would be good for cyclocross too i reckon, and of course theyre good mechs for road use at a really good price, ive got a 3400 on my roadbike and its been very reliable. well worth the money- ive bought a spare because i know i will break it eventually, but two of these are a lot cheaper than one xt! 03 April 2013

Cassette and chain choice

I have this mech fitted to my bike but need to replace the cassette, chain and jockey wheels after 2,000 miles.

Will the Shimano HG73 Chain (114 links) and a Tiagra 12-27 cassette work with this mech? Which jockey wheels do I need?

Thanks!

Answer: 
Yes; the HG73 and Tiagra 9 speed cassette will be fine to use with the Sora 3500 rear mech. The jockey wheels you need are the 'RD2300' (sku274771) linked below.

The chain certainly will, and I'd imagine that the cassette should be fine.

Answer: 
The Sora rear derailleur will not be suitable for the setup you wish to do. You will a long cage mountain bike derailleur for the triple ring and cassette range.

Answer: 
We would not recommend using 9 speed dérailleurs on an 8 speed drive train. This will cause indexing issues and not work smoothly.

We would suggest you source a specific 8 speed rear dérailleur.

I want to change this for my current Sora Rear Derailler as I want to change to a bigger tooth cassette for hills. I currently have a Sora SS which is rated to a 27T but I want to put at least a 11-28T possibly even an 11-32T on my bike. Will this work and if so how do I know what size cage to get?

Answer: 
The Medium Cage mech has a 32tooth Max cassette possibility; so for the suggested setup, the Medium would be advised.

Will this rear mech operate a 11-30 set up?

I am presently riding a Specialized Allez Elite 9 speed Tiagra 50-34 at front and 12-27 to rear, I would like to fit 11-30 to rear would the 9 speed sora 3500 allow this? if so which cage size?

Answers

Answer: 
Yes the medium cage derailleur can shift across a range of 11 - 32tooth.

A longer chain may be required but when changing the cassette it is advised to swap the chain regardless to guarantee the perfect engagement between the two.
