    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? ;)

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

    yenrod Guest eve my deraileur went into the rear wheel, upon starting from some lights - a total freako happening - I'm going to fnd one of those plastic spoke protectors and re-affix it as i feel it does the job now that ive got no rear mech and a bent gear hanger ! I'm now wonderig if my bike is jinxed in some bleedin way as so much goes wrong with the ****er !!!

    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?

    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:!;)
