    Will Ultegra 6500 cassette work with 9spd XTR hub?

    I've got a bike with mavic wheels/9 speed XTR hubs/XT cassette, and it looks like I use that bike more and more just riding local trails instead of mountain biking so I would like to change cassette from 11-32 to something more appropriate for level riding such as 12-23 to 12-27.

    So I was wondering if anyone can tell me if Ultegra 6500 cassette will work with 2010 9spd XTR hub and 9spd XTR chain? And if not is there a cassette with 12-25 gearing that I can buy for XTR hub?

    yes the 6500 cassette will work with your hub, chain, everything else about your bike.

    fwiw, I run a 12-27 ultegra cassette on my race bike for the closer spacing than an 11-32 offers, and never need anything lower than a 22/27 combo.

    Yes, it will work. Lots of weight weenie guys used a Ultegra or DA 12-27 cassette with a triple crankset a few years ago.
