|My new cassettes ||pedalAZ|

|Some of yuo weight weenies might be interested in these. I got a couple of new cassettes from Switzerland, by Recon. The 12-25 weighs 114 grams, while the 12-27 weighs 111 grams. They are CNC designs, cut from aluminum alloy. Not the highest mileage in the world, but light, light, light.
Here's the 12-25
And the lighter 12-27
I suppose the 12-27 is lighter due to having more material cut out from the back side. A new chain is recommended when switching to one of these.
I use a similar cassette on my MTB, with the largest 4 cogs from one CNC'd piece of aluminum, and the other 4 of CroMo steel, loose on the hub body with spacers. That 8 speed setup is only 126 grams. The MTB cassette is from the UK.

|I get much better mileage on them now that I saw what kind of havoc I could create shifting under a major load.
Now I shift as a shark swims through the sea. Silent and deadly. (Can't you just hear the Jaws soundtrack now?)
