    Bent cassette cogs

    I wanted to see if any of you could recommend a decent 8 speed cassette to replace the cheapie I keep bending. Its possible I was shifting under too much load. Seems like 8 speed is getting a little harder to find.

    Get a new cheapie cassette and don't shift under heavy load.

    Something like this:

    SRAM PG-850 8 Speed Cassette > Components > Drivetrain > Cassettes | Jenson USA

    Might need a chain, too?
    KMC X8.93 Chain > Components > Drivetrain > Chains | Jenson USA

    Thanks guys! Found out the bike was still under warranty so I had the repair done for free.
