    Can you buy just half a Shimano cassette?

    Hey, It's come to the point where my cassette and chainring has gone through about 5 chains so looking to replace the lot. I only ever use ~5 smallest sprockets and notice since Shimano cassettes come with the biggest sprockets as one unit and the smaller ones individually, is it possible to...

    Cassette alignment

    I'm using one road bike for both indoor training and outdoors. I fitted an identical cassette to the turbo trainer. It's an 11-34 Ultegra so it has a spacer. I've had to reindex the gears though when swapping from trainer to wheel and vice versa. Do I have to just get used to it and try to...

    New gear cassette

    Hi guys, I just wanted to pick your brains if I may. I have just had a new chain and cassette fitted on my hybrid (for the first time on a 6 year old bike), the chain was really worn and stretched, at a local independent bike shop. I must say first of all the bike and gears feel great, like a...

    Hope someone can give me a clue where I could get a decent Alloy 700C rear wheel with cassette freewheel to take 7 speed. O.L.D. 125mm. I am really struggling to find one for my Raleigh? Is the answer to get the rear dropouts pushed out? Thanks in anticipation. Ken.

    I'm trying to help my brother fix his bike, it's Scott Hardtail and has a Deore XT rear mech. The bike was new in Feb but has been heavily used and abused. Much to my annoyance it doesn't get cleaned that regularly. He said his gears weren't working properly so I checked the 10 speed chain and...

    Freewheel vs cassette

    Today, I have removed the freewheel from my touring bike as I wanted to service the dirty hub, cogs, spokes etc. It was shocking to see how easy the process was. I have used a long braker bar and the £4 special tool for removing the freewheel. You don't disturb any other parts and it takes not...

    CS-HG30-8I cassette - what do I need as a replacement? When to replace?

    I have a bike with a 11-32 Cassette, and Shimano Tourney groupset.
