    10 Speed Cassette...options other than XX

    I'll looking to possibly drop the cash for the new XX group. I have an extra set of wheels for my race bike. The big issue that i'm having with the group is the cassette. The cost is hard to swallow to begin with, but buying two is almost obsurd. Does anybody know when we can be expecting something other than a XX 10 speed cassette?

    thanks

    Didn't you read his NIC, he's only there as pack fill, he's not an actual fit, strong racer boy who can push such gears

    ......FYI you can get custom cassettes made for about 1/2 that, Harris Cyclery (AKA Sheldon Brownes) store does it, not sure who else.

    uzurpator's 10 speed wide cassette formula:

    Ingredients:
    10 speed road cassette of size you want ( 12-27 for example )
    10 speed cassette spacer (2.35mm thick, 17mm I.D.)
    large "mountain" sprocket (30/32/34/36, whatever )
    1 rear wheel.

    Take wheel. Mount 'mountain' sprocket, then put the spacer. Now mount 9 of the road cassette cogs, lock the contraption with a lockring ( if you have chosen 11-xx cassette for the conversion, then you might need a new lockring, one fitting 12T+ first cogs ).

    Does this actually work?! It's a bit of a jump to the 36, but, he'll, you may have just made a bunch of 'racers on a budget' day!

    Why should it not work? People have been doing this for touring bikes for pretty much eternity*.

    *eternity is defined "from the first time shimano made 10 speed gruppo"
