    What's new about them? Its just another brand slapping their name on cassettes from the same maker Nino goes to, but with a different annodizing colour on the spider. We had a thread a few weeks ago about another ebay seller with new titanium cassettes which are identical to nino's but about 2/3 the price nino demands for his. Its worth pointing out though that DirtBoy is likely to be selling these Aerozine ones as he just plugged them in Singletrackworld today, so i find the timing of this thread rather suspicious.

    Here's nino's (he lists them on ebay at $275 starting price and more for the buy-it-now)

    <img src="https://i23.ebayimg.com/02/i/000/cf/06/1a4b_1.JPG">

    Note the identical spiders and cog ramps and teeth profiles and laser etching of the tooth count into the rings.

    Here's Cycle-King's (its a hong kong seller so the prices are listed in pounds sterling on ebay) at about $175.

    Yes, why, no rules were broken. In fact I just read them, nothing even close to that. Also note that one of the entires in this thread is from the moderator of this forum, so I doubt things are not proper. And lets not get a Nino thread going, please. You in fact were advertising for the enemy by stating his information. All that needed to be stated is that they look just like the product from Recon.

    Huh? Not ME!! Sorry DeeEight.

    I guess someone is using the same name as me. First my site and now my user name . I use DIRT BOY. I know nothing about these cassettes and never go to single track forum. Hell, I did not know they had one until you posted it.

    Edited: the Aerozine entry was a month later, not the same date. Oops!

    As noted those do not yet exist on the Aerozine site. And they look just like the Recon units http://www.recon-harry.com.tw/recon_02a-2.html

    And if you want to become a dealer for their product you only need to buy 100 pairs! Dirtboy and I have that kind of cash laying around don't we!

    Yikes.
    How about discussing substance of the cassettes. Has anyone actually used them? How do they perform? How much and where to buy?

    Yes, Nino has and so has anyone foolish enough to pay his inflated price for them. Just use the search function... or scroll down a page or two...his 6 page thread was locked a couple weeks ago.

    Nino's cassettes are gold. Everyone knows the color = fast hierarchy: gold > red > white > black > silver. I'm having my frame anodized gold as we speak, and I'm putting these on too:

    The cassettes nino is selling ARE NOT gold fwiw unless he sells both gold and raw ti. I think he may have had a few gold ones made just for testing but they tacked on too much $$$ to the price.

    Personally, I'm skeptical of the shifting of all these ti cassettes . . . .

    However if someone makes one that works as good as shimano

    I'm not, the ramp profiles and teeth shapes are stolen directly from shimano. I'd assume because the HG patent has expired. So they should shift identically to a shimano cassette, and for that matter, the ramps make such a small f'ing difference anyways. Suntour and Real and SRAM and Campy cassettes all shift perfectly well without "hyperglide" patented ramps.
    Their original HG patent which covers the ramp design dates back to late 1989... http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/4889521-fulltext.html and as memory serves, US design patents at best run 18 years if you keep up the maintenance fees.

    i bought one of the "cycle king" branded Recon cassettes off ebay and it shifts great, just as good as my M960XTR. the 11-32 is indeed 175g. the only issues are the stupid alloy lock ring that only has 2 or so threads and easily strips your freehub - replaced with a King lock ring with 5+ threads and luckily didn't have to replace my freehub body. the other issue is that the cogs below 18 teeth could dig into alloy freehub spines pretty good as there is no carrier for these. then again same thing would happen on a 11-34 XTR below the 17 tooth cogs.

    thanks for the review gratiflying. And shifting under pressure is good too? I'd like to see how they hold up, but I'd be less worried about that than the shifting performance.

    i tried one of these, put probably 500 miles on it (hard XC trail riding). It was good for a long time, the issue i finally hit was that i bent a gear because a branch got stuck in it causing the chain to jump between the bent gear and the gear above it. I took it apart to see if it was possible to straighten it out, i got it pretty straight and it was pretty good for a bit but then it wanted to get it self back to that bent shape. It also dug into my DTswiss 240s hubs like he mentioned above.

    So for the price, if you race and want something light, it will work for you, most of the racers replace parts all the time so if you arent worried about spending the money on it, it will be a nice light component, you just wont know the lifespan.

    I am still running it on a second bike, but im back to the SRAM PG-990, less to worry about.
