    Replace new cogset (lx) with an old one (xt)

    Just picked up my new Specialized Epic last night. It comes with a HG-50 11-34 cogset that weights 400g+. I have a CS-750 11-32 (about 266g) that has around 2000 Km on my old MTB. Thinking of switching them to save weight and I don't really use the 34.

    Is 2000km on a cogset enough to cause shifting problems when mated with a new chain?

    Maybe, Maybe Not

    The only way to know for sure is to give it a try for a few miles.
    If you kept you're previous drivetrain in good shape there's no reason for your cogset to be too worn. Compare the old and new cassettes visually.
