    $27 for an 11-36 10 speed cassette

    It looks like a quality item and I'm going to give it a try for that price.

    Well, that is better than the last time I saw Sunrace stuff. There was a link from the side bar here last year, and the rear derailleur, cassette, and chain were in the SRAM X0 price range if I remember correctly.

    Is this cassette any good? I can't find anything out there on these things.

    Must have missed it, $48 was the price and it went down...apparently for only one day.

    Amazon dynamic pricing.
    Person 1 sees it for $28 and buys. Person 1 tells person 2. Well, that first purchase caused the price to jump up. We'll see this more and more now a days.

    You'll see this on different sizes for the same piece of clothing too.

    I got 2 long sleeve Pearl Iz jerseys for $18 each totalling $36. So, I got free shipping too.

    Certainly is reasonable. Looks as good as a SRAM PG-1070 at less than half the price. I'll bite.

    Prices change on Amazon at midnight so I just bought one a few mins ago and the price is the same, at least until tonight.

    Really impressive for $28. Haven't real world tested, but appears to be nice quality. Only 5 grams more (yeah, I know the zip tie adds like a gram) than the 1070.

    I wonder if there will be any issues when running this with a XT derailleur

    Wonder if it would work with a SRAM Wolftooth cog? Or would it require a Shimano cog? I have no way of knowing if the shift ramps are more Shimano or SRAM like.

    So, to answer the Wolftooth question... sort of. The Sunrace physically fits on there seemingly the same as the PG-1070 with the Wolftooth SRAM GC. It seems to seat properly. The 17t is removable without knocking out any pins also. Without peddling/shifting it I don't know if there is some alignment I don't know of that would make it not work. for an 11-36 10 speed cassette-20140322_202216.jpg for an 11-36 10 speed cassette-20140322_201058.jpg

    I got mine on Friday and it looks really good for the price. Actually it looks pretty good for $48 cassette too. A quick ride around the block and everything seemed to shift just fine (with a Shimano XT rear derailleur and chain). It is also 10 grams lighter than the SLX cassette I have, which really means nothing to me but I thought I'd mention it.

    $28.63 here. For that price I'll gamble. I was debating leaving the 29er as a 2x10 and only using a Wolftooth on the AM sled.

    To me, it looks a lot more like an XT rear cassette than SRAM. It's hard to tell from the pic, but I guess you'd have to compare shift ramps to see if it behaves more SRAM like or Shimano like?

    (I'm not also not certain what the differences are between the Shimano and SRAM Wolftooth GC's)

    Know nothing of Sunrace, and am just wondering aloud here...
    Could it be with 1 x 11's entering the MTB arena, that 10-spds have become the red-headed stepchild?
    The best is the one you want to ride most often..

    Sunrace is a component company from Taiwan, most of their stuff has been found on department store and some lower end LBS bikes. However they do make better product that seems to be well made. Even Shimano started at the bottom so you never know.

    I wouldn't go that far..but it's definitely becoming the low-mid end group for us mountain bikers. 9-speed is now on the cheap bikes and pretty much entirely phased out.

    My main reason for posting is to subscribe. I'm very curious to see how these hold up with use.

    I personally don't care that much. I figure if it holds up half as long as a PG1070, I'm still money ahead. Hell I can buy three of these for a PG1077.

    I jumped too. thanks.

    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 ordered this up, but a friend told me I need a solid carrier for the Hope hubs I had ordered, so I'm shipping back to Amazon today. Just a heads up to any others that might run into this situation. I'm still learning about this stuff.

    i can get you those measurements tomorrow according to my tracking when my sun race cassettes show up. i am thinking though that even the 2 cog carrier should be fine since even 4mm base SS cogs are usually ok on aluminum and the sun race carrier is likely to be more than that.
