    Anybody running one?

    I'm wondering if the cogs are loose and placed on the freehub body seperately with the red spacer between, or stuck together with a couple of steel bolts and placed on as one unit...

    All the cogs are loose and just slide individually onto the freehub.
    personally I would get an Ultegra cassette instead of the sram.

    Get a 950 in 11-26 and call it a day, like half the weight and also cheaper. The DH specefic cassette just seems overkill especially if you haev actually held the 970DH... The solid cogs are ridiculous.

    I've seen a 12-26 sram go down... Not by the most graceful of riders but it makes sense.

    I ripped a cog off my sram cassette coming out of the gate in the C-worx 4X.

    Props to mavic for helping me out and taking a cassette off one of their display wheels and getting me running again!!!

    Kyle,

    I've mashed a couple of cassettes before. Bent rings, broken teeth.

    Was just wondering how easy it would be to make a frankencassette... Have got a few loose ti cogs lying around that I can mix things up with, and would prefer an 11-28.
