    2006 SRAM PG990 cassette

    Does anyone know the weight for the 2006 PG990 11-32 cassette? I am getting ready to order a cassette for my new wheelset and I am not sure if I want to go with the PG990 or an XT. I don't want to drop the extra money on an XTR cassette, for the money I think there are better ways to lose weight (like ti spindles for my egg beaters).

    Unfortunately I didn't have much luck finding 20t and 30t front rings so I'm going to stick with an 11-32 cassette.

    from MHC received some new 990 cassettes in, so he may know.... if memory serves me I saw a write-up that mentioned the wt. is still above a comparable toothed XT cassette.

    How does it compare performance wise?

    I can't tell a difference.

    It essentially comes down to whether you want a red spyder or a black one... flip a quarter. The sram was $10 cheaper, but shimano has since lowered their price.

    can't comment on the 2006's but in 2005 and last few years I've gotten better performance/wear with SRAM cassettes that Shimano

    Plus Red spyder==pimpin

    Damn! The older ones were 295grams. I hope the 11-32 don't follow the same pattern...

    But didn't those older cassettes end with a 28-34t? I heard the newer ones end with a 30-34t (like shimano).
    No offense to KB, but if I see another "Strong, light, cheap. Pick two" line on this site...

    No offense to thieves, but if I see another "Ride it like you stole it" line on this site...

    the red spider definitely looks cool but it is heavier than XT ...you can decide what your priorities are

    besides, the cheapest i've seen XT for is still cheaper than the cheapest i've seen the SRAM for ...and that's just not right when the XT is made in Japan and the SRAM in Taiwan
