    Good evening. Can anyone assist with a daft problem?

    Shimano Deore FH-M475 VIA-M hub with the standard freehub as supplied. I am trying to fit a SRAM Apex (road) 10-speed cassette.

    Everything engages fine, but it is very obviously not going to do up tight with the lock-ring screwed up. It’ll do, but there’s massive slop.

    SRAM cassettes are definitely compatible with Shimano freehubs in general. Have I got a fundamental problem with 10-speed / 9-speed compatibility? Or is there some cunning adaptor-widget of some sort needed?

    Any help greatly appreciated at this stage! 🙂




    Not sure this helps but Shimano 10 spd road cassettes have a tiny thin washer that fits behind the cassette. Not sure if SRAM needs the same.

    Yes, that sounds like the right general idea. Hmmm. Definitely don’t have one… 🙂

    May I be permitted a morning bump?
