    xt m771 cassette life?

    I was wondering what kind of life people are getting from their xt m771 cassette?

    I've built up a new bike and have been riding it for a couple weeks. I have had a little noise coming from the drivetrain. Tonight I figured it out. The rear cassette is worn and the noise is the chain kinda popping into the cassette. I've got around 500 miles on mine. I oil chain before every ride.

    Before you replace compare the cassette to a new one. If it looks fine then replace the chain. Maybe dérailleur is bent?

    ^ thats a little excessive on average....places with mud and sand will have much less life. I'd say a 1000-2000k life on average.

    Have 1900 miles on my SLX and still very little wear.

    I oil chain before every ride.
    I use dry lube like Rock-N-Roll, and lately DuPont Chainsaver from Wal-Mart every 30-40 miles. I think cleanliness is more important than actual lubrication.

    I still don't think that any amount of grime would wear it out in 500 miles tho.
