    Tight cassette lockring

    I'm trying to remove a 7-speed cassette which has either been on the bike since new (l980's) or installed by a bike shop umpteen years ago. The bike has been stored in a slightly damp shed - the chain had a few rusty tight links. There looks like there's a few spots of surface rust on the...

    7-speed cassette & chain

    I dug out an old racing bike recently, and need to replace the chain and probably the cassette, but I can't remember the spec. I don't have the bike at hand to check, either. It's a Peugeot, and probably dates from the late 1980's. It has a 7-speed Shimano 105 groupset, Biopace chainrings(!)...

    40 tooth 10 speed Cassette question

    I have a shimano 105 5700 medium cage rear mech on my caad8, the chainset is a compact 105 5700 series also. Because I have multiple Sclerosis I can't push full tilt like I did before diagnosis. I've ridden up 18-20% percent gradients using a 32 tooth rear cassette but my cadence drops to 60rpm...

    Cassette compatibility?

    I have a 11-42 shimano cassette 10speed, need a new one but none available anywhere, can I change to any other 10 speed cassette, I'll be changing the chain at the same time, the rear mech is a long cage, will I need to keep the new cassette to a certain size to accommodate the longer cage?

    Wobbly cassette

    Hi all, I picked up a gravel bike the other week and the PO let me have the original wheelset (devoid of all useful things like rotors, skewers, tubes and until today a cassette.

    A Lighter Cassette

    I was staggered at the sheer weight of my Shimano HG5000 10 speed 11-32 teeth cassette I am guessing that there are lighter cassettes out there I will put the old one on the scales but I reckon its half a kilo.

    Shifting problems at both ends of the cassette

    New cassette, new chain, new rear cable (inner and outer) but if I'm on the biggest sprocket it's reluctant to shift down to the next sprocket, and if I'm on the smallest sprocket it's reluctant to shift up to the next sprocket. So it doesn't seem like a derailleur alignment issue, and the...
