|If you have a Shimano 9 speed with a few worn cogs this is a cheap way to get new life from it instead of spending $40+ for a new one. Or if you don't need a 12 tooth, get rid of it and build your current cassette into a custom 13-25 or 13-27.
13-23 105 only, but the cogs interchange with Ultegra, and it includes the Sweet 16! For you weight weenies, the small cogs should weigh about the same as Ultegra cogs, and look the same.
Listed at $20, but use code W183 to get the 10% discount. Most LBSs don't carry individual cogs, and a single cog from Harris Cyclery will cost you $10 plus shipping, so at that price I bought 2 just for the spare 9 speed cogs. I've got enough extra cogs now to keep my cassettes going for a few years and thousands of miles until I make the eventual 10 speed upgrade.
