I purchased an XT cassette a few weeks ago and tried to install it on a CK hub laced with Sapim spokes...It wouldnt fit.
There are nubs on the back of the cassette that are to long and contact the spokes.
I installed a SRAM cassette and it works like a champ...clearance is great and freewheels without contact
Then I installed another XT cassette on a Industry 9 hub laced with Sapim spokes it did the same thing...I didnt have a SRAM cassette to check it out so I used a dremel to grind the nubs down enough to fit. (I used a XT casette that was previously installed on a Shimano XT wheelset and transfered it to the Industry 9 hub.)
What gives? Did Shimano redesign the cassette?
Im PDS sure the spokes/hub and install are correct.
