More teeth than Ultegra cassettes ?(2 posts)

More teeth than Ultegra cassettes ?PeterRider

I want to replace my Ultegra 8-spd (HG90) 12-23 cassette by a cassette with more teeth. What cassette type is the best to do that ? Typically I want a 11-28 or a 12-28.

I heard about XT cassettes, but those are IG. What is the difference between HG and IG cassettes ?

Thanks,

Pierre

Believe XT is a wide ratio mountain bike cassette. Performance is advertising an 8 speed 13-26, that should be a good fairly close ratio road cassette with more teeth.
