Woah! Nice build! Looks like an awesome gravel grinder!

Does the shifting work ok with the Roadlink? I've seen that Wolftooth officially only supports 11-40 cassettes.

Hi! Thank you!

It works smoothly, more than one year with that configuration and I'm totally happy. In fact, I'm sure it could get a 44 without problems, and even a 46 - but I didn't tried yet, because for my area the 36x42 is perfect.

Is it the short cage or medium cage version?

My derailleur is the long cage, is the 105 for the 3x10 (Shimano RD-5703)
