    Sora vs Claris (cassette)

    have been looking to pick-up a new 8 speed cassette. current 8 speed is Sora but looking around now they're not that easy to find, most are Claris. will I notice any discernible quality between Sora and Claris or is it just branding/marketing?

    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...

    Can anyone tell how worn this cassette is?

    Was told that the cassette has covered about 400 miles, but want to know if any of you experts can tell me if it is worn. The reason is the chain it came with was worn. Thanks

    Folks, my road bike has an Ultegra group set with an 11 speed 11 x 30 cassette. I would like to upgrade to an 11 x 32 or perhaps an 11 x 34 cassette. Would the existing derailleur be suitable for this upgrade ? Thanks in advance....
