General Lee cassette problems
I have bought a General Lee SRAM cassette and it is causing me some serious problems.Posted 4 years ago
I have fitted it on its own (just replacing the 4 sprockets) and even though i do the lockring up to 40nm the cassette is loose on the freehub. I have tried different spacer setups but they either work loose or screw the shifting up.
It didn’t come with any spacers (or fitting instructions) just the 2 sets of sprockets so i am wondering if i am missing a spacer or if there is an ideal setup for them.
Its on a Hope Pro2 evo freehub with a SRAM PG1070 cassette if that makes any difference.
I’m tearing my hair out and seriously considering pulling the trigger on XX1 to sort it.johnnygoonerMember
I installed the Shimano version after much eliciting of opinions and techniques on a previous thread on here. Have to say, now it’s all bedded in it works a treat. B tension screw on the mech set to about 3mm clearance, The adjustment on the barrel adjuster on the shifter is very fine. 1 or 2 clicks either way it has problems shifting one way or the other. I’d love to know what it is I’ve done right or have I just got lucky? I really don’t know! Only thing I’m kicking myself about is that I’ve installed a 34t chainring which combined with the 40t General Lee adapter gives a pedal stroke to wheel turn ratio of 0.85. If I drop down to 30t chainring and match it with a standard 36t cassette I get a ratio of 0.83. Point being I could’ve achieved the same using standard parts. Unless of course there’s something in all of the above that I’m missing. Any thoughts anyone?Posted 4 years agotimmysSubscriber

You’re missing that you have a much wider range, no? You have the same ‘bottonm’ gear but a much higher ‘top gear’. With a 30 + 11-36 your ‘top’ gear of 30/11 would be very spinny.Posted 4 years agojohnnygoonerMember

Yes of course! Focusing far too much on the climbing aspect which I’ve found ok with the current setup. ThanksPosted 4 years ago
