    SRAM PG-990 Question

    OK. I just ordered a SRAM PG-990 cassette to replace my XT. I know, the XT is supposed to last longer and be lighter, but I'm a sucker for red anodizing.

    Anyway, I mistakenly got the 12-34 instead of 12-32 (probably not a bad thing, seeing as how I'm coming off a 5-month injury hiatus), and it steps 26-30-34. I think I read somewhere that the older ones jump 28-34. It has the 5 arm spider, but the SRAM site says this:

    Spider Type:: Alloy, 11-32=5 11-34=6

    Does that mean a six-arm spider? If not, what does it mean? I'm confused. What model year do I have? It's supposed to be the latest one. Part no. is 200-698.

    Doesn't really matter I suppose, I'm just being curious.

    Looks like it has a 5 arm spider from the photos that I have seen. Maybe the 5 - 6 designation is just an ordering designation not an indication of spider arms.

    As far as I know, only the 2006 has the red spider. The 2005 that I had this year was plain looking with a black spider but quite a bit different looking than the 2006.
