    Straightening A Cog

    I had a SRAM 99 cassette that worked flawlessly for me. When I finally had to replace it a few weeks ago I went with an XT cassette instead, because I wanted the closer gearing across the big cogs that SRAM doesn't offer. Mistake. Does not shift as nicely. PLUS, I've already managed to bend the second-largest cog. Anyone have practical first-hand advice about how to straighten one of these? (Note: it's the whole ring that's bent, not just a tooth.)

    Thanks!

    See this thread

    Sorry to hear about your XT cogset. I've got a SRAM cassette on my road bike and I agree it shifts better than the XT on my mtb.

    There was a post a few weeks back about this same thing:

    Bent cassette ring - repairable?

    Good luck.
