Miss White Not worth paying the extra for ultegra this is great!!
Dr Rees Bought as a casette for my smart trainer. Works fine.
Mr Hussain HQ designed that works well with ultegra chain, been testing it so far so good. Smooth gear changing.
Mr Upegui good deals
Mr Matute I just put an 11-25 version of this cassette on a bike and it shifted really nicely. Picking up an 11-28 for another.
Mr Learner I picked this up on sale for a new build and wow is it nice; much smoother shifting than an HG-500. I've always gone low-end on cassettes but this has changed my mind. I've already bought another.
Mr Brunt Best value for those of us still running 10 speed. Flawless shifting.
Simon Exactly what you'd expect for a Shimano cassette, good hardwearing and smooth running.
Mr Collins Good value for money, don't bother with the dura ace stuff which is overpriced tosh. Get this instead and spend the rest of money on beer
Alann Great cassette and perfect shifting with the gears ratios.
Brian Bought one for use on an older 10 speed bike and another as a spare. Does exactly what I need to do and don't see the point in the extra expense of buying Ultegra. You would never know the difference anyway!
Mr Griffiths Delivery was prompt and the price was very competetive. Fitted with no issues. Original parts had 9,500 miles ridden. Shows the quality of the 105's. Regular rider to work.
Mr Bullett Product sound. Needed a bit of spacer fiddling to fit my 11sd ready wheels but no real issues.
Mr Allen Shimano products always deliver - tried and true. This cassette provides the range of gears I need.
Mr MCGANN A great cassette and well worth the money.
Mr Bergsma Great quality and so much cheaper than ultegra
Igor This cassette will lasts forever, using with right chain and lubes, there's no way to use this and get problems. Just check if you need the 11-25, 11-28 or other....
Mr Elstob Upgraded from an 11-25 to this 11-28 and can honestly say it feels like I've grown a new lung! The quality is also much better than my stock cassette, which was possible a Tiagra or equivalent. Definitely recommend this cassette. Looks nice, too.
Neil Usual great quality cassette from Shimano giving great shift performance.
Mr Girvan Bought for my winter bike. Reliable cassette at a good price.
Mr Talbot Use it for commuter/training bikes. Must have had about 5 over the years by now. Always impressed with the durability/performance. Don't let anyone talk you into buying Durace... 105 is where its at...
Rob Great Shimano quality. Glad to get my hands on the less common 12-27 variant. Merlin deliver promptly and cassette was a good price.
Anaconda Quiet operation and smooth shifting
Mr Walker As always with Shimano products you can be assured of a quality product. The 105 cassette is cheaper than the Ultegra but delivers the same crisp shifting action. Recommended.
Mr Brunt Good price for a high quality cassette. Sticking to 10 speed as it's good enough for a non-racer and cheaper to replace.
Mr Bowman A bit heavier than the Ultegra, but functionally just as good. Good price and spedy delivery from Merlin.
André Shiny. Smooth. It just works. Love it.
Mr Bray Value for weight 10 speed cassette. Used on my cyclocross bike. Nice quality cassette.
Mr Bryce Good replacement part. Light with slick shifting.
Jed As you would expect from shimano smooth gear change and the chain runs very quiet on the cassette
Mr Wilson Great product at a great price. This product is easy to install and lasts a long time.
Mr Gauntlett Great value and hard wearing cassette
Mr D Good quality, great price 10 speed cassette. Shifts so smoothly I can barely tell I shifted! Just make sure to get a 10 speed chain if you don't have one already.
Plane Great Value. Long life
Sam M Replaced an old Ultegra cassette, quality is just as good with the slightest of weight penalties, and loads cheaper - fantastic!
Mr Stewart I use this cassette with Sram drivetrain and KMC X10-93 chain, works perfectly!
Mr Boroughs Inexpensive, works perfect. Can't imagine needing anything else.
Ian The cassette works well and is good value for the money. I was happy to see that it came with the spacer needed if you want to install it on an 11 speed hub (which I did).
Mr Kneale Lighter and better finished than the 11-25t tiagra cassette it replaced. 28t definitely has me spinning up the steep hills better.
Mr Fowler This was my only option in order to have a 10sp 12-27 cassette and it has performed admirably.
Boromedic Seems light and well made like most Shimano gear, gear changes are smooth and problem free. Slight upgrade from the previous Tiagra one I had and worth the money, I know everyone has gone 11sp now, but I'm quite happy sticking with 10!
Mr Polansky Great Cassette, and you can't beat the price. I'm running the 11-28 with compact cranks and have no trouble with even the steepest hills, and can also pedal through at really high speeds. The only issue is that only the biggest 3 cogs are attached and all the others are separate pieces. I have had the splines dig into my aluminum freehub body, but with a heavy duty freehub, this is not an issue.
Mr Loughead Comes with 1 spacer, fits my 11 speed 3T wheelset with no issues (the wheels have the other spacer needed). Shifts great offers me that extra low 11 tooth gear, great for races with a good tail wind.
Mr Sullivan Slight downgrade from the rest of my ultegra set up but all good and no difference in shifting
Mr Kopasz This 105 rips across the plains and climbs like a mtn goat. Light, durable and silky shifting. I have toured 105 many a mile and this cassette does not disappoint!
Old geezer I wanted this to go with my Ultegra triple chainset, Shimano don't seem to do a 12-27 cassette in Ultegra and the narrower gaps compared to a 11-28 suit me better. Seems to be identical in quality and weight except for the shiny Ultegra spacers. Recommended for Ultegra drivechains.
Mr Shaw Have 3 of these already, I didn't hesitate on buying another especially at the price offered. Arrived the following day after ordered. Good product. Great service.
Mr Piai Unless you are after the lightest kit for racing, this cassette will fit perfectly. Great price, great performance!
Mr Rowe Genuine Shimano Product, works as good as Ultegra. Only difference is it doesn't have the shiny spacers.
AR Excellent cassette. Light, no noticeable difference from the ultegra it replaced
Mr Porter This is my second 105 cassette, after 3 chains and about 8k miles, I happily got another at a good price.
Mr Clements Just what I needed. Great wide range on the cassette. I'm not the fittest of riders but having the wide range makes the steeper hills possible now. Easy to fit and good quality. .
Mr Sanderson Bought this to replace the 11-25 cassette that came on my Felt F75 as I have some very steep hills locally. Works a treat; gives me an extra low gear without changing any of the other gears. Delivery from Merlin's was flawless as usual.
Mr Jaunce Bought this as alternative to my 11-25 as didn't think that set up would be conducive to mountain riding. Haven't tested the cassette yet, but my original 105 cassette is still going strong and shifts superbly so don't foresee any problems once fitted.
Mr Earl 105, smooth, dependable and cheap. The higher spec groups wont make you any faster, they just lighten your wallet.
Mr Greenberg Quality Shimano piece. Best bang for buck on 11-28 cassettes. Much lighter than Tiagra and much cheaper than Ultegra. Combined with a compact crank, this is perfect for hilly Southern California.
Mr Clark Durable, crisp, inexpensive, and virtually foolproof. What's not to like?
Mr Matchura This cassette in 11-25 was purchased for a non climbing wheel I built up. What can I say, it is typical Shimano quality with nothing to really complain about. My climbing wheel has an Ultegra hub and cassette and I honestly cannot tell any difference in shifting. 105 is a workhorse!
John in South Carolina Haven't installed my new cassette yet, but the original it is to replace has served me very well. 6 years and many 1000s of miles and still shifts well. I love the Shimano 105 10 speed gearing setup.
Mr Midmore I bought a Sensa Romagna Special from Merlin Cycles nearly 2 years ago. I use the bike for my daily commute & now - some 6.5K miles later - things unsurprisingly have worn-out. Love the bike, so I have treated it to some new Shimano 105 parts. Now as good as new. Thank you Merlin Cycles for all the good gear together with excellent service.
Mr RICE 105 stuff is bulletproof!
Dominic Bought the bundle with the chain and had forgotten how much difference it makes. Drivetrain feels so much smoother now, almost like a new bike. And insanely quick delivery as usual from Merlin, ordered Sunday evening, delivered Tuesday morning!
Mr Tobin Functional and cost effective. Not the lightest cassette on the market but for training/commute wheels this is perfect.
Mr Burgess This was brought for my Bournemouth Sportive on 31st May. Having previous done a test ride of the hillier section, I could not get up the steepest hill in one go with my 12-25 cassette and this was achieved with the 12-27 albeit at 6 MPH. Only the largest two sprockets are different so the remaining ratios are the same as my 12-25 and I will stick will this cassette from now on. Definitely recommend.
Mr Card Easy enough to fit, works great, shifts smoothly and quietly - what more could you want?
Mr Senechal Really similar to Ultegra, except few grams. I was looking for a 12-27 to go with my new compact crankset. Everything on my bike is Ultegra, except this. However, I thought it was better to have a good gear (12-27) than going with ultegra and choose between 12-25 and 11-28. 12-25 didn't offer enough possibility for climbing (25 is too low) and 11-28, the 11 is useless and losing a crucial gear like the 16 (step from 15 to 17) was not a good idea to maintain cadence on an Ironman.
Miss Ribeiro Resistant and reliable. I use this cassette with Sram group components and it works perfectly.
Mr Gilbert Nice Quality item, smooth as silk with a complete 105 5700 setup
Mr Gowan My old cassette had been put through a lot of miles without being replaced, after swapping for this (like for like) the bike felt brand new! Also replaced the chain with this too and the shifting on the back block is perfect. The weight difference between this and the Ultegra for my winter bike is negligible. My old cassette had started to slip on gear changes and even sometimes when giving it some welly but not now. The price from Merlin was unbelievably cheap and the delivery even faster. I ordered one afternoon and the next morning it turned up! Ridiculous!
Mr Booth As usual amazing price and service from Merlin Cycles. High quality cassette, bought to replace a tiara 11-25. The extra teeth on the 28 help on the steeper climbs but still with the 11 for faster straights and downhill. You can feel the difference in the shifting compared to the Tiara. Much crisper.
Mr mckenna I bought this as I wanted to change the ratio I was running to give me an extra gear in the mid range but still have a small enough gear to get up the steep climbs I previously had an ultegra block on but it doesn't come in this ratio and I have to say I've been very impressed, it actually feels smoother changing than the ultegra did and it's cheaper - bonus
MatthewN5 I fitted this to make a straighter chain line in the lower gears that I use the most for climbing in the big ring - 19-21-24 - and it has made a difference. It means (marginally) less steep chain angles which means less annoying noise and smoother riding. I didn't need a 28 ring. Like all Shimano products, shifts are crisp and efficient and 105 quality is fine for daily use. It's a pity though that 12-27 is no longer made in Ultegra though.
Mr warren As I am an old bloke (within touching distance of 50) I really appreciate the extra teeth on the top couple of rings to help me up those hills. Really simple to fit with the right tools.....very happy indeed...
Mr Grant Great Cassette. Easy to install. Gear changes are much smoother now. For the price, you can't go past this 10 speed cassette.
Mr Corr I think this is a great cassette. It works nicely on my bike. Merlin did great as usual and it arrived super quick.
Mr Leonard Purchased as a replacement for existing cassette. Typical Shimano high quality.
Mr Bain Bought this due to being a good price for my daily bike. Shifts well and no problems. No point in spending lots of money on a consumable product that is used in all weathers.
Mr Lyall Good quality cassette at a decent price
Mr Queiros Good. Smooth gear changes.
Mr Catherall Nice wide ratio for them hilly rides.
Mr Hammond 105 seems to be very close to Ultegra on performance; bit heavy and chrome-style shiny but still excellent value for money. Shifting is great looks like it will certainly last well. Being used on a training wheel for turbo trainer, which is the ideal use at this cost.
Mr booth Product was delivered quickly and as described, was also a very good price compared to other suppliers.
Brad Very good cassette at a reasonable price.
Mr Jeffery Brilliant product, good price and a good company to deal with.
Mr edison Great price and superb delivery
Jim Solid and reliable as you would expect from Shimano, great value from Merlin
Mr Clumpus I bought this as ultegra doesn't have the 12-27 anymore. This is just as good as the old ultegra and a fair bit cheaper than the new ultegra.
Mr Bean Excellent quality and value as expected
Mr Cheshire Great cassette , super quiet, smooth when gear changing , good value
Mr greenway Usual Shimano quality as expected, nice wide spread of ratios for general purpose riding.
Mr White Out of the box and onto the splined hub. No problem. a quick heave ho with the torque wrench to the recommended torque and fitted to the bike. Checked the chain length and ready to go. Have been told to leave the new chain as lubed from the box until it actually needs lube and that's it. Smooth and quiet it is and a reasuring click from the freewheel.
Mr Logan All round great service - great price, fast delivery and item exactly as expected. In my top 10 good suppliers
Mr Busby Great piece of kit
Mr Oliveira Very good product, fast ship to Brazil, excellent store I recommend !
Mr may good product reasonable price very quick delivery,
Wurzle The whole process...Faultless
Mr Hourigan Slightly heavier than the better models but hard wearing and ideal for my winter training
Mr endo I upgrade from 9-speed to 10-speed, changing the triple crank to double one. That causes me to change everything. I must have spent more money, but here "Merlin" gave me good prices. Thanks so much, Merlin!! Next time again I will definitely come and buy some, I swear. I was lucky I found this nice internet shopping. Thanks.
Mr Woods Excellent qualitybranded item at a really good price, can't go wrong. Usual reliable service.
Mark Great product, as described. Fast delivery as well.
Fekke Not the lightest but probably one of the hardest to wear out!? Reccommend it!
Mr Easton Bought to replace my prevoius 105 cassette. Shifting was great before, and is still with the new cassette (expected). I believe this to be great value for money as my previous cassette lasted for 2 years before, so for
CDavies Like for like replacement. Really easy to fit, a little tweaking on the indexing and have now got a much slicker gear change. Recently tackled some horrible hills and grinded through the gears with no problems.
Mr Gomes Product came fast and exactly as described along with the manual. Quality shimano item. Very nice purchase at merlin cycles. Recommended.
Mr Wren Great cassette with solid gear changes. I have 105 and Ultegra and can hardly notice the difference. Rapid delivery by Merlin!
Mr Muddiman Purchased this cassette to go on a set of new lightweight wheels so I could have winter/summer set of wheels as usual top quality Shimano 105 cassette straight forward fitting with right tools .Shifting performance up and down the cassette perfectly indexed and crisp..
Mr Weaver I have just converted over to a compact chain set after spending many years riding a triple. It works like a dream, I wished that I had done it years ago to be honest! I just wish that Ultegra did the same ratio? Quality product and quality service, it doesn't get much better does it?
Lee Purchased with LeMond Revolution trainer, 12-25. Durable cassette and good price.
Mr Woods Very lightweight and reliable piece of equipment. My son is building his "dream bike" but within a sensible budget so this weight and price are perfect for that project.
Dr Beckett Great product, great price, fast delivery. Happy customer.
Mr Isaac I bought this product to make my hill climbing a little easier on long rides as I have a 12-25 on my bike at the moment, andI found found the recent Dragon Ride very tough on the hills. Excellent product but more importantly Melin was the best price on the web, and the service was outstanding. A brand new cassette for
Mr Biglands Easy to build and substantial
Mr wallace product met expectations at a competitive price
Mr graham Super fast delivery and well packaged at a great price, Merlin leading where others follow.
Mr Drysdale Quality cassette - easy to fit and works a treat. Usual fast service and great prices from Merlin. Very happy.
Mrs KUN The gear changes are noticeably quicker and more seamless, so much so that sometimes i had to look down to make sure the had chain moved!
Mr townley a good quality cassete that looks good and works precicely as it should, just what you would expect from shimano
Mr Eddy I chose the Shimano 105 5700 10 speed cassette with the 28-11 rings to give me the best of both climbing and speed gearing's as I mainly train on wold's, I am very pleased with the cassette and would recomend it to all but the top end athletes among you. The only down side of the particular gearing I chose (28-11) compared to my previouse cassette 25-12 is that the gear jump into some gears are noticable and it can disrupt cadance when on climbs etc, but still not bad for such a large spread of gears! Recomended!!
Chris Usual Shimano quality - work so smoothly, more so than SRAM equivalents in my experience, and last well.
Mr Ngai IMO the casette feels smoother compared to my tiagra casette and shifting is improved, you can buy ultegra or duraace but bang for buck, this is a good investment
Mr Moger Nice & shiny, good price, will buy from Merlin again.
Mr cropp shimano quality what can one say, good balance between weight/cost/wear
Mr Gadd About 25% cheaper than the nearest I could find on the Internet, delivered quickly and as always with merlin, a no hassle, very competitive purchase. Thanks.
Ben Good quality shimano equipment.
Mr smyth Good value casette with dinner plate 27 cog for a 20% climb Great price and usual high standard customer service
Mr H Use if on my training wheels. Very good cassette and good value.
Mr brigham Really good value - not just cheap but very good too. My first one has done over 2000 miles and still going strong. I got a spare from Merlin at a super-low price so that when I am ready to change, I am good to go. Really smooth shifting - why pay more?
Louise Mack Outstanding online bike shop. Great value goods. Easy to use website, great customer service and extremely quick delivery.
