    Cassette question

    Hi i've replaced my 36-11 with a 36-12 cassette. What was listed on what I purchased with the bike originally was 36-12 however it was actually a 36-11. I should have checked before I bought the replacement 36-12.

    So now that the new cassette is different, does that mean I need to adjust the shifters and derailleurs? Or should it run fine?

    I've only had a quick carpark run and I think it shifts ok but I want to be sure cause I don't want unnecessary wear on my new cassette or poor performance when on the trail. Any help would be appreciated, cheers.

    spacing between cogs is the same so no issue there. you may have to adjust the distance from the 12 tooth if the derailler is too close but i doubt it.

    Cool thanks for that. That's exactly what I wanted to know. If the spacing between cogs is the same then it should shift the same. I was concerned that the spacing might be different and that i'd be causing excessive wear on the new cassette.

    Cheers
