    6 speed cassette/cog question

    Looking at a cheap 6 speed cassette to caniblize for the 18 tooth gear for my single speed project. Does the 6 speed cassette use the same hub and lockring pattern as the 7,8,9 speed freehub? It says it is Shimano compatable. $8 on sale.

    I think......

    That if it is a cassette it would be the same, but being a 6 speed it might be a freewheel. (just a guess though)

    6 sp.

    some of the earlier 6 sp. cassettes used freehubs with even splines -- no odd size indexing spline. They also had external threads on the upper section and were held on by a threaded first position cog rather than a lockring.

    I think I can use this for my project. It has a separate lock ring if the pic is correct. Just want the 18 tooth cog.

    Just get a Novatec cog for $5-6. Works better cog designed for shifting.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Timely post indeed.

    I am working with an old 6 speed Shimano SIS cassette. Does anyone know how to get that sucker apart? My newer cassette tool won't fit.

    Thanks!

    The outer cog should thread on. You'll need two chain whips.

    if'n i'm not mistaken, you can drill the pins out of the back and it'll fall apart nicely. get a bit bigger than the "bolt" head and take it down.
