|My DA 9spd has about 5000 miles on it. It's time to replace the chain again and I was wondering about the cassette. Is there some visual inspection or tool for measuring wear on a cassette?

|There is a tool for measuring cog wear - but just put a new chain on - if it skips - the cassette is worn out. If that is the case - either buy new cassette for the new chain or put old chain back on and get some extra miles from the old cassette.|

|On a really worn cassette the teeth will have a shark's tooth look, or hooked. Other problems can also cause chain skipping, like cable adjustment.
