Wears like Iron

Weakness:

Red should be brighter!!!

I tip the scales at 280lbs, ride crazy Pisgah Forest trails in Brevard NC and I wear everything out. This cassette has outlived my crankset, my pedals and my tires. I just purchased a new one to have before they go out of stock. If you are breaking this, Learn how to shift. It is Amazing!!

Wears too quickly. SRAM HAS NO CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!! Why should you have to buy a new casette when only 2 cogs are worn.

I freakin' HATE SRAM because there is no service after the sale. They could care less about the end user!

i was able to strip 14,15,16 gear teeth during a sprint uphill

great lightweight cassette for regular weekend riders, hammerheads and hardcore riders should stay with shimano, stronger and last longer.

Weight, good construction.

Weakness:

Cog nut seems a little weak

Seems to be the best cassette I've owned so far. Makes shifting so much nicer and it doesn't skip like my old shimano.

Red Spindle, Price, Quality

Weakness:

might could be a tad lighter (nit picking)

Not sure what other folks are running into with this cassette but I'm on my second in the past 3 years and this cassette is bullet proof. If you know how to shift and when this cassette (and your chain) will last all race season and training.

POS
I should have returned it when the small cog wouldnt install without filing off a bit, but I had new wheels and wanted to ride
after approx. 50 miles of admittedly knarly singletrack, bike started making noises and I had to constantly tweak the cable adjuster , chain broke twice so I bought new chain and when I went to switch I was examining the gears and the 3 largest cogs were bent, no crashes,no sticks nothing just pedaling up and over rocks. the only other cassette I ever had do this was anxtr 12/32 with a 4 arm spider, junk pure and simple

light,looks good

Weakness:

durability

I had this approx 6 month. About a month ago my rear started skipping when pedaling hard. I thought it was just my deraillor was out of alignment. Last week I was going up a technical climb and skipping bad-wouldnt shift. One of the rivets had come loose on the 3rd cog and the ring was bent outward. Apparently the arms are plastic. I bought the 2006 model to replace as this has apparently been fixed(now aluminum).
