- Deore/SLX/XT cassettes and chain rings
My problem is that I keep trying to change my chain early enough that it hasn’t killed the chain rings and cassette. I put a new chain on (at the point I think it will be OK) and get loads of slippage. So I put the old chain back on a run into the ground.
I’m thinking of just going Deore for all the cogs, running everything into the ground each time and not worrying about it any more as the cost is more acceptable.Posted 5 years agolucienMember

Thats my approach – can’t really tell the difference performance wise and if you keep looking around, many retailers have bargains – SRAM fits as well, and the same appliesPosted 5 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
running mix of SRAM/Shimano/Middleburn/Raceface (and probably a couple more) all seems to be fine
Sorry, I’ve not logged mileage. I imagine it would vary a lot with conditions. They die quicker in a peak district winter than anywhere else.
Well done, your not wasting your time. It wears when it wears, peak is an accelerant, mud doesn’t help, sometimes stuff just goes wrong. Check your chain length and replace earlier to keep the cassette going.Posted 5 years ago
