I am converting my 26'er into a 650B for giggles to see if I like the wheel size- I found a Handspun wheelset that utilizes a Shimano XT Rear Hub and thought I would take the plunge. My frame has swappable dropouts so I can run gears as well as ss. Currently I run a WI rear disc hub so I use a free wheel so I don't have direct experience using a spacer/cog setup on a cassette body. In past readings it sounds like some cassette bodies are made out of aluminum and strip easily when running the spacer cog setup and that steel bodies are superior. Any ideas what the Shimano XT cassette body is- alum or steel? Internet searches did not produce the info. Thanks for you help!
