- xt 11-42 cassette for free…
make sure you have a steel freewheel if mounting it to plain sprocket not one on a spider.
It can’t be beyond the realms of possibility to mount the chainring to the 36t of a complete cassette with a spacer on the bolts and one behind the cassette to pad out the freehub and spread the load across the whole cassette.Posted 5 years agotorquilMember
Ha, nice to see someone do this properly rather than my proper bodge!
I didn’t use mine for long as I reckoned it’d trash the freehub, i figured id just order a one-up sprocket instead.
Whilst waiting for the new sprocket I switched to a 30t chainring instead of the 34t I was on before and that seems to be fine now – I never want for a higher gear and the climbs are fine (I live at the foot of snowdon so most rides included a fairly decent climb). I’m not sure I’ll bother using the 42t sprocket when it finally arrives.Posted 5 years ago
