What is the difference between HG and IG ?
I know that HG is Hyperglide and IG is Interglide but could you use an IG cassette with an HG chain without too many problems ? If it is, would I be better off using an SRAM chain with an IG cassette ? Or would I just have to track down an IG chain ?
This is not going on a race bike, just a regular rider...
