8 speed cassette

Postby welsh_14 » Sun Nov 18, 2012 19:51 pm

Hey, just a quick one.
Can I fit an 8 speed cassette to a superstar Tesla hub? Wanting to buy some new wheels, but not replace the gears just yet, so will be sticking with the 8 speed cassette a little while longer!

If it will fit will it simply just fit straight on or will any spacers etc be needed?

Yes it'll fit as it's exactly the same size as 9 and 10 speed cassettes

Cheers for that! Wasn't sure whether the 9/10 speed cassettes were larger to fit the extra sprocket on.

Nope, the spacing between the cogs is smaller to fit more in the same distance.
