Shimano HG-50 Cassette

Bought 11-28 with new chain to replace standard 12-25 cassette and already feeling benefits on the road. Gear changes seem smoother even without changing shifters or derailleur mechs!

Shimano CS-HG50 8 speed 11-32

Bought this to replace the standard 13-26 cassette on my 2012 Specialised Allez, along with a WH-RS21 rear wheel. After 60 miles, the combination works very well, and I am particularly pleased with the wider range of gears. I had anticipated problems with adjustment, but it's absolutely fine. My only gripe is that I needed to fit a spacer which was not supplied and not mentioned in the on-line manual. A spacer was supplied, but documentation suggested it was not necessary for the 8 speed cassette, and it was thicker than required. Sorted by LBS. Very pleased.

Casettes Guide

What are cassettes?

A bike cassette is the cluster of rear gear cogs attached to the rear wheel.

Who needs a cassette?

Any conventional derailleur-geared bike has a cassette, whether it’s a road bike, a mountain bike or a hybrid. The alternatives are a singlespeed or a hub gear on the rear wheel.

What are the choices?

The main difference between cassettes is the number and size of gear cogs on them. Seven, eight, nine, 10 and 11-speed are the most common.

What should I buy with them?

If you’re replacing your cassette, sometimes you have to replace other parts of your drive train such as your chain or chainrings. This is because they wear evenly together.

Anything else?

With some cassettes you don’t need to replace the whole unit. Instead, just part of the cluster is detachable, so you only swap out the most worn cogs.
