Does anyone know where I can get a spare cassette for the older Dura-Ace hubs?(8-speed, last cog threads ON the free-wheel)11-21 or 12-23. Thanks
Oh yeah.Sprockets
Nov 6, 2001 9:11 PM has them on sale right now. I would stock up, I don't believe they are being imported anymore. stocks them as well. They also have the matching chain which is hard to find. They will price match nashbar (and others).
Oh yeah.Rob

Thanks for the info. Stupid me I did not look further down on the posts until after I posted this Q and I found the cassette at loosescrews as well. Duhhhhhhh. Anyway, I will check out nashbar (as loosescrews cassette is $$$ expensive)

Oh yeah.Rob

I checked Nashbar and that cassette is for the newer 8-speeds (hyper-glide). I am looking for the old Uni-glide style(first generation 8-speed Dura-Ace). I am just looking to get a spare, as the one I have is in good shape for 3000 miles on it.

I had the same issue and loaded up with spares several years ago. I have three sets of 12-21's at home, which I'm planning to sell; I'm upgrading the freehub body to 9 speeds.

Using the old Uniglide pattern, I am told that the first cog (12 or 13) was made to fit exclusively for DA. I may be wrong, but you might need to get the DA first cog specifically, and I don't think Nashbar has the ones you are looking for. Also, you will need to get Uniglide cogs as Hyperglide probably will not fit.

You can also check for additional info on DA freehubs (uniglide and hyperglide).

If you have any questions, e-mail me at

How much do you want for the cassettes you have? I am planning to rebuild my hubs soon and have them re-laced with new rims and spokes. Any spares I can get will help allot (you selling your old hubs as well?). I am getting back into biking allot now (I'm older, getting fatter, need to exercise more) and just built a new mountain bike, and planning to re-build my Trek 400(vintage 1989) for the fourth time (6000 miles +). I really like the DA hubs but the rims are nearly toast, so I am going to have them redone. Anyway, I'll check out that site for more info.

PS-I tried to email this to you, but it would not go. Drop me a line.
