Great workhorse
by Stuart B on 22/06/2020

Fitted this for a customer training to ride Land's End to John O'groats. Have every confidence that it won't let her down. Combined with a new chain, already fitted, it will more that make the journey there.

Replaced chain on my Wife's Specialized Vita and 4-5 gear skipping. Replaced like for like cassette and now shifts perfectly. First time doing such a job, tredz were the only people with all three things needed to do the job. (Cassette tool, whip chain tool and the HG50 12-25.

Can't go wrong
by Anonymous user on 19/10/2019

These cassettes are shimano's "cart horse" of cassettes. They are cheap and just keep working. I cycle about 5000 miles a year on and off road and if kept clean these last ages. Yes they are a bit heavier than higher end cassettes, but for what they cost in comparison who cares. Have also raced with them on my xc and enduro mountain bikes and use them in the French Alps for downhilling with no problems. Can't really go wrong with these!

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.
