Can someone offer any pearls of wisdom as to why I might be getting a little bit of play with a Shimano 10sp 11-36 cassette,just been replaced and i think there really shouldn’t be any play at all when lock ring is tightened?. The play is only very very slight but definitely there. Wheel is a easton xct and as far as I can tell, both wheel and cassette are undamaged?
is this normal or not???
Remember the cassette is attached to the freehub body which in turn is attached to the hub. Sometimes there’s a little axial play on the body i.e a millimetre but any more than this and I would make sure the freehub body is securely attached to the hub.
