    This happened to me today...I had just replaced my chain - 5000km - and it was just 'on the slip'. I thought I might continue with the existing cassette when... 'tinkle tinkle' into the road fell some metal! :ohmy:

    the remnants - picked up before doing the duck waddle home wheeling sick bike... :smile:

    But I had one of these and was able to 'get out of jail'... :sad:

    and got to work - at midday! :wacko:
    And then got a good soaking going home - the fifth time in six rides this week :blush:

    How many Km had you done on the (now) damaged rear set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  4. About 5000km Keith - same as the chain. Usually on that cog, as in 39x14. I probably polished it too much...:biggrin:;)

    Surely that should never happen? I'd change your manufacturer if I were you. Have you tried Shimano? ;)

    I need to get further and faster
    So I can set me free

    You'd never get that with a decent Ultegra casette, even after ten thou.

    Aren't you supposed to replace the cassette and chain at the same time? (i.e. If one is worn then you replace both.) Or is this just a myth perpetuated by money grabbing bike shops?

    :blush::ohmy::ohmy::ohmy:
    I would rather have my Record mech go through the spokes of my carbon rear wheel and rip the rear triangle from my Pinarello Prince ON A WEEKLY BASIS than fit one of those things! ;):blush:!;)
