    $27 for an 11-36 10 speed cassette

    Not really, though Sunrace seems to be supplying components for markets the big players are not supporting well. They also just released a 11-36 9-sp cassette, with the 3 largest cogs on a carrier, for $40msrp. It looks very good.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Anyone who has this and an XT cassette care to measure the width difference of the largest cog groups' spider? Just wondering how much narrower this is, as it appears only two gears on the largest cog group vs. 3 on the XT cassette. Just thinking if this will be suitable for my alu freehubs
    I don't have an XT cassette, but I measured this one, the largest cog group's spider is 8mm wide.

    Hope this helps.

    The sunrace actually has the two biggest cogs on one spider, but then a second spider with 3, so 5 solid mounts...not too bad. The PG-1070 only has 4. The AL. will probably take some wear regardless of what you use. If you're really worried about tearing up your freehub, you might want to consider switching it out for the steel version: Hope Pro 2 Freehub Body | Chain Reaction Cycles

    So just to be on the safe side: I should have no problem running these with a steel free hub body, XT 780 rear der., and KMC X10 chain, right?

    I measured my xt cassette's largest (3 cog) spider at about 11mm wide. I'm not overly concerned but will probably put the sunrace to use on my wheels with steel free hubs to stay safe. Hopefully no problems with KMC chains and this will prove an awesome buy.

    The Sunrace cassettes are out of stock, and have been for awhile now. Isn't this essentially the same thing since Sunrace manufactures Driven?

    Amazon.com: Driven CSMX 10-Speed Spider Cassette with Lockring, 11-36T, Black: Sports & Outdoors

    The silver cassette is $35. Still not a bad deal.

    Any thoughts? Would you say it's more SRAM or more Shimano? I haven't gotten mine yet.

    I have no idea what is different between the ramps/indexing on a SRAM vs Shimano cassette... but Wolftooth felt the need to come out with 2 separate cogs (where One Up did not).

    Finally was able to compare the SunRace to SRAM and Shimano. The shift points/ramps definitely seem Shimano-ish to me. Time to see if WTC will exchange me for a Shimano GC.

    Though, they are sorry for my disappointment. That's sympathetic of them.

    Bumping an old thread here. Did any of you figure out how the 40t Shimano GC works with this cassette as well as the 16t? Long story short I'm building a Jekyll for my father and ordered a Shimano GC for his SRAM cassette, but still have the new Sun Race cassette laying around that came stock on the Jekyll. I'm more concerned on the 16t more so than the 40t. Thanks!

    Works fine with a 42T Shimano Wolftooth giant cog and One-Up 16T cog. It is like a Shimano cassette, not SRAM.

    I know the thread was resurrected for different reasons, but if anyone else is looking for a dirt cheap 11-36 ten speed cassette, the Shimano HG-50 is 12.99 at jenson, which is about as cheap as youll find. I believe mine weighed in around 380g or so, but hard to argue for the price.
