    450g or a bit more. I have one, OEM from 2005. Performs well, but weighs like it's two of them. Hugely good gram price to upgrade to XT.

    I have been thinking about getting an XT for a while now.

    Performance has XT M760's for $59.98. I am on my way to my local Performance now........

    According to my research (when considering upgrade advantages) for a new bike purchase. The weight is a little less than that:

    -- HG-50, 9-Speed, 11-34t = 358g
    -- XT cassette typically weighs only 264g
    -- XTR cassette = 240g.

    All weights are based off of values found on misc. web-sites.

    I did the XT upgrade on my new bike and got an unexpected added bonus: it looks way cooler! Has a really nice shiny grey metal look. Nice.

    New question here. Weight taken from WW..web site:

    Deore LX CS-HG70-9 2004 11-34 9-speed 441.5 g

    I do not think Shimano's Deore HG-50 11x34 9spd would be lighter then there LX offering.

    If indead the HG-50 weighs about 450 grams I could save nearly 1/2 a pound for $60.00!

    I just wish someone could verify the actual weight of a HG-50.

    BTW: They threw this cassette on a Stumpjumper that is actually a decent hardtail weighing around 25 pounds.

    www.shimano.com

    According to the Shimano web-site:
    http://bike.shimano.com/catalog/cycl...=1153480026802

    The CS-HG50-9M (The Deore Cassette) weighs an average of 358g for the 11-32T, that isn't the same exact thing as the 11-34T, but I would assume they are fairly similar in weight (within 60 grams), perhaps I'm making a faulty assumption. But even that little of a weight difference was plenty for me to do an upgrade. My LBS only charged me $30 to upgrade on the new bike I was buying so it was an easy decision.

    Incidentally according to the Shimano site:
    The LX (11-32T) = 339g
    The LX (11-34T) = 390g

    Shimano's marketing doesnt lie..and pigs fly..

    If your going to count grams, and want accurate weights, buy a scale..

    http://weightweenies.starbike.com/listings.php Indpendent weights for us gram counters..
    Sure, not every thing is listed but I trust it more than the claimed weights..

    Ya, that should help Chuckle out.

    Chuckle,
    Just go out and buy both, as well as a scale; weigh them, decide if it is a good deal or not, put the better deal on your bike, and then sale the other for a loss on ebay. Then you can use the scale to weigh whats left of your checkbook.

    Sram PG 990

    The Sram PG-990 is a good upgrade per dollar too. Not quite as expensive usually as the Shimano stuff, but within 20 grams or so weight wise.

    What? PG990's weigh more than XT cassettes in the same sizes according to weight weenies listings. Why would I pay twice the price for something heavier.

    To be exact, here are the weights in 11-34 :

    - Deore (HG 50) : 415 g
    - Shimano XT : 295-300 g (depending on unit)
    - Shimano XTR : 244 g
    - SRAM PG990 : 304 g

    A differnent perspective... Heavier=stronger.

    Keep in mind that a heavier rider with potential to out torque/power lighter riders like me have easily bent several XT cassettes. I'm sure there are others like me. I've also run the hg50 cassette for many years without fail!

    100 grams or there abouts of difference, or a quarter pound. It makes more sense for a heavier rider like me to pay less for a stronger/more durable cassette than pay more for a weaker/lighter cassette, over and over again for a fixed amount of service life.
    Our life is a journey. let it be epic.

    The OP was asking about a 11-34 cassette... that's why I posted the weights for 11-34 cassettes.

    Shimano HG50 weight

    On my cheap electronic kitchen scales I made it 352g including locknut.I reckon my scales are probably 5% tolerance which is in the same ball park as jericurl above @ 358g.

    Well.. I weighted my wifes bikes parts in the other day and it has HG-50 11-34t cassette. It weighted 435g on my scale.

    Quite a difference in weights with the same cassette... I wonder have all weighted the right cassette.

    Though this is an english website, it appeals to people from all parts of the world. Some of those people do not have english as their 1st language. I certainly still encourage them to contribute to the site, and have no trouble understanding the meaning of their posts. Please be more accepting of these insignificant errors.
