new cassette fitted: is this correct?

Postby n12ksb » Tue Sep 10, 2013 20:20 pm

Hi im new to this and I have a bit of an armature question.
I just fitted a new cassette, I have tightened it and everything works perfectly however there is a gap between the rear of the cassette and the hub.
You can see the keyways on the hub as the gap is arround 5mm
Does this sound right?
Is all tight and there is no unwanted movement it just didnt look right from memory.
Any thoughts?
Thanks all

Some can look like the splines are showing. But it is not actually part of the freebody splines just the end if the machine runs.

But pics would help as would cassette make model and hub info.

I have added a pic showing this...still didn't find out how to do this from the phone.
I have just noticed the section of the splines / keyways showing on the hub have a radius and looks as though the cogs are in fact sitting as far back as possible....its just still concerning me that there is a gap there.

looks normal to me. take the cassette off and i think you will see that they are not part of the splines.

That is correct.
That's how my NP freehub looks as Nicklouse said it's the end of the machine runs.
You could fit a spoke protector to fill the gap but a lot of people have aesthetic issues and a certain stigma attached to plastic dinner plates between cassette and spokes ;)
