MicroSHIFT Acolyte 8 Speed 11-46T Groupset
|Availability:||In stock (10)|
Let's face it, for some of us our Pipedream will be a winter bike almost exclusively. It will be expected to be no nonsense and low maintance, and provide great value for years to come. It will likely be ridden hard and put away dirty. So for those of you who fall into that category this is for you. A complete drivetrain that doesn't complain and will work without all the finickyness of 1X12 at a cost that's less than most 12 speed cassettes.
Introducing the silly value MicroSHIFT 8 speed groupset. We've packaged this up ourselves and completed it with a KMC 8 speed chain.
Acolyte 8-Speed Right Xpress Shifter With Indicator
Changing gears is a snap with the Acolyte shifter. Discrete thumb and index levers and a crystal clear gear indicator simplify shifting decisions, making each action and reaction easy to understand. And, of course, it retains the light action and positive indexing that microSHIFT has made its name on.
- Ergonomic trigger placement
- Clear and easy to read indicator
Acolyte SpringLock Rear Derailleur for 1×8 Speed
The heart of the Acolyte derailleur is our innovative SpringLock system. By pairing a customized linear rate high tension spring and a dual stage activation mechanism, we’ve developed a system that can provide substantial chain security when you need it and can be turned off when you don’t. To engage the clutch, turn the engagement bolt clockwise until it clicks. There’s no way to overtighten the bolt. To disengage the clutch for wheel removal, flip the switch. It’s that simple.
- Innovative SpringLock chain retention keeps chain in place over rough terrain
- Direct path cable routing for smooth and responsive shifting
- Compatible with 12-42T and 12-46T 8-speed cassettes
- Compatible with Acolyte shifters only

And yes, it works with a standard HG freehub body and a normal 8-speed chain
