    cassette question

    can you fit an 8 speed cassette on a 9 speed wheel? without too much difficulty.

    They're the same width as far as cassette fitment goes.

    yes, I do suggest you also run an 8 speed chain, might as well benefit from the strenght of it cause it's a tad bigger, and you will need an 8 speed shifter. you can use the same derailleur.

    LOL! Well, I'll put my axle in the hub, but I think I'll put my cassette on the hub.
