    Microshift 11 speed cassette 11-46t, why no love?

    Just another option Ive never heard anyone mention. Much like the Sunrace 11-46, this has a much more sensible ratio spread than the idiotic, what-were-they-thinking Shimano 11-46 casettes. My limited experience with Microshift stuff has been positive also. Just another option out there....

    Sunrace = Czech people desperately trying to come up with a cool name

    Not sure to take this seriously as I'm trying to remember seeing much on here that you do have the love for. 😬

    I ride Sram GX with the sunrace 11-46 on one of my bikes, works great. Given sunrace is widely available and has great pricing I wouldn't bother with something like microshift just for the sake of being different

    I didn't know MS made a wide-range cassette.
    I have the entry-level Mezzo stuff on my neighborhood bike and have zero complaints. It's easily as reliable as Deore.

    I was using the Arsis group on my road bike and actually preferred it over Ultegra.
    MicroShift is so underrated as a brand.

    Yeah I don't know why some feel the need to bash who follow status quo. Others need to bash the ones that venture off to other avenues...

    Microshit - the direct result of eating too much cheese and meat. AKA deer poop. So much effort, so little reward. In fact it feels a bit like passing a wide-range cassette.

    By how much? You must have stats for various cassettes.

    People used to say that about Skoda, they don't anymore.

    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?

    I just assumed the Microshift and Sunrace cassettes were the same products, just re-branded. Is that an incorrect assumption?

    I checked pics and the Microshift looks different

    Have a couple rides on the 11-46 11-speed Microshift G113. The ...36-40-46 spacing is really useable, better for me that the 36-42-46 of the Sunrace. It would not be mistaken for a Shimano cassette on upshifts, as it is quite clunky. If Shimano would admit they made a mistake with the XT's huge gap between 1 and 2, I wouldn't have to suffer with substandard shifting, but they haven't. So, I'll get used to it and appreciate the benefits. Riding buddy has the Sunrace 11-46 and it seems to shift better; I'll see what I can tweak to get better performance from the G113. Too early to evaluate material quality; the two big cogs are supposed to be 7k series aluminum, so they could last if done right.

    I found that shifting improved after a while-I think the cassette and chain wore in a bit. FWIW, YMMV, ETC.

    Shifting update: shifts better if you insatll it correctly. It is the width of a ten speed cassette. Installed on an eleven speed hub, it requires a shim to get it tight. It really shifts pretty good now. A part is only as good as the installer.
