Tom StringerSomehow lighter than what I was expecting, rolls nice and changes gears ok. Will have to see if it last 4000 miles like the last one.
Mr RobertshawUsual Shimano quality and works very smoothly with Shimano GRX400 derailleur.
stephenGood quality cassette at a good price . Well packed and a speedy delivery. Well pleased 😀
Mr MorinThis one is for my trainer, it's the exact same that i got on my bike, so it's going to be perfect. And it was the only place I could find that had it.
Mr StevensGood range of sprockets for touring. Smooth changes.
Mr O'ConnorSolid piece of kit. There is a little bit of play on the two separate end rings as you install them on the hub but if you centralise them correctly and tighten it up to 40Nm you should be fine. I have a set on my turbo and my winter bike.
L28-12 is a little on the heavy side, but otherwise works well.
HECTORWorks as expected, no issues with installation.
Mr ElliottNeeded a new cassette as overhauling my tourer/ gravel bike. Previously had a 11x32 but went for this 11x34t. What a difference it’s made going up hills. Merlin were very competitively priced and delivered quickly. Thanks.
MarkWPurchased as part of complete upgrade to my 2nd bikes drive train, simple to fit and works as designed. Prompt delivery.
chrisCheap and cheerful cassette for second bike if weight not an issue.
Mr GibbonsGreat value, gearchange is running like clockwork again
Mr ParkWorks perfectly, quality item. Exactly as described. Arrived very promptly even during lockdown. Would definitely use again.
Mr PyeTypical high quality manufacture and design from Shimano.
Mr WaghornBrought this to fit onto my turbo trainer. Having never fitted a cassette before, I was surprised how easy & quick it was. The performance is just like my bike, & so it should be!
EMIRMounted this cassette on my road bike and removed previous 11/28 one. I rode about 85 miles with this one and shifts very good in combination with KMC chain. I hope that 11/32 will save my legs this summer when I start nasty grind in Wyoming over Big Horn Pass. I recommend this cassette to all Mamil's out there.... lol..
Mr ChildsI have one of these Shimano HG500 Cassettes on my outdoor wheel, so needed one for my indoor trainer wheel. Unbelievable value again from Merlin, and the only UK bike store to send Shimano components to NZ. Very pleased with the price and instant availability too. Thanks Merlin.
Mr LavertyWorks as intended, good quality cassette
davyisonWith fewer 10 speed cassettes about, and certainly in the larger cog (32) I bought this as a spare. May need to make the next step to 11 speed.
Mr GShifts about as well as the 28t Tiagra version it replaced, and will keep me pedalling on harder climbs. Quality exactly as expected.
MikeShifting not quite as sharp as the Ultegra it replaced but at a fraction of the price this makes sense for a part that gets replaced every couple seasons.
ZacharyGood basic 10s cassette, I prefer Shimanos over Sram. But at the price, you can almost afford to replace with every chain change.
Mr AmiMy wife's bike came with the Shimano 4600 groupset. I purchased this while upgrading to the Shimano 4700 goupset when the 4600 started skipping when shifting. This is a huge upgrade over what the bike came with. Shimano has done a great job with this groupset filtering the technology down from the Ultegra I own on my other bikes. Way to go Shimano for coming out with an affordable groupset for recreational riders that works fantastic.
StereojYep, this is a fine cassette. Well worth the money, and not much heavier than the Ultegra
JoshThe 11-32 makes hills a dream. The cassette is well built and is easy to install
ErnieI have 3 Road Bikes and one Cycocross Bike and I have change all but one of them to the 11-34 Tiagra Cassette with the 34-50 Crank up front It makes the steeper hills much easier to climb. Also this was a great price and the shipping was fast.
Mr BowringThis 11-32 cassette was purchased solely to take part in a Sportive on Dartmoor. It replaced an 11-28 which would not have been ideal. It did the job and I have no complaints. Merlin's delivery and service was, as always, exemplary.
Mr TabinerUsual Shimano quality. No problems fitting. No need to adjust indexing.
Mr FodySave some money and use these cassettes for commuting and training. Dura-ace/Ultegra cassettes are noticeably smoother but these are 90% as good for a fraction of the cost.
Mr BatesonSo far so good. Good shifting. Does the job.
Mr BurdettApart from a slight weight gain, I`ve yet to find any noticeable difference between the Tiagra cassette and its higher-priced alternatives
Silvano PereiraShimano cassettes, in my opinion, are excellent! The Tiagra line, even being the fourth in the hierarchy, is still excellent!
JohnReally top notch cassette for just general riding, training. Appreciate the 12-28 range and certainly find myself using the 28t more often the 12t.. Serves its role as a training cassette perfectly. Could be lighter, and have separate cogs for better cleaning.
Mr RobertiUn pacco pignoni ben progettato, con un aumento di peso trascurabile rispetto a un equivalente di 105, consente ancora variazioni precise ad un prezzo conveniente.
Mr HorridgeReplacement for a 12-28T Tiagra cassette. Easy to install, a 10 minute job. Didn't even need to adjust the derailleur. Dialled-in perfect every shift.
EdwardExcellent piece of kit. Good shifting, useful 32 tooth sprocket and well finished. A few grams heavier than 105, but is that an issue at this price?
PeterAt first I was after the 11-28 Cassette but ordered the 32 tooth version instead. It gives a slightly better range, useful for some of the hills I ride. Sturdy and trustworthy piece of kit, this.
Dr PartridgeUsual Shimano quality. Easy to fit and very smooth running.
B PTrusty and awesome performance as ever from the Tiagra range. Ordered as part of the yearly bike freshen up! Great service from Merlin too.
JohnGreat workhorse, wanted a 32T for some mountain riding and it was either this or a Sram at twice the price. A little heavy but 100 gram not going to be noticed when using the 32 cog.
JamesWorkhorse cassette, no complaints.
Devin StetlerAfter hours of research I discovered this little gem. Not many 10 speeds will give you a 32T for this price. Sure, it's a bit heavier than some, but for a commuter and enthusiast I am absolutely loving this upgrade form my old 12-25T 9 spd. Massive improvement in climb-ability around the SF bay area.
Mr SStandard workhorse cassette, performs faultlessly. I use this cassette for commuting/club rides over 100 miles a week and have another on a second wheelset for cyclocross, never had an issue with them yet. Great value, for me they last for about 4,000 miles of all-year, any-weather riding before needing replacement.
Mr WarehamExcellent cassette, only been out on a few rides so far, and the range on the 11-32 is excellent, medium cage meant I couldn't go up to 34 but having a better middle range makes such a difference.
DanGreat Shimano quality on this cassette, has cut-outs on the larger cogs to save weight - couldn't see the point in paying the extra for a 105 etc version. Fits fine on my Shimano WH-501 and Mavic Ksyrium wheels without any need for extra spacers (Mavics needed in the standard spacer only).
Mr SEARSSmooth changing, excellent.
FlatleyGood value for money cassette, not high end but still good quality.
WilldominiExcellent, well priced item. Used in conjunction with my Shimano Zee Derailleur on a 1 x 10 MTB set up. Changes very slickly and gives solid feel. Delivered in 2 days, well done Merlin.
HoweNice cassette, decent quality, great price too.
Mr MorrisGreat choice for an inexpensive 12-30 cassette, but if you want something worthy of a nice bike, opt for the Ultegra version.
ParisYou can't beat these cassettes for value, seem as good as Ultegra
Mr NOVAKA few years ago one had few (shimano) choices for road cassettes with a 30T. It was either this one or the ultegra one. It seems that there a few other choices with 30T now. This one works great and weighs more but costs less than the others, so there you have it.
James D.Great quality cassette for the price. Shifting is smooth and if you keep an eye on your chain wear it'll last a long time. Smashing service from merlin as usual.
Mr BucciGreat value component, does the job when the budget is tight.
Mr SampsonBit of a lump but changes gear as well as any other cassette I have had
FreesterBuilt like a brick, last forever. (and cheap as chips with quick delivery as usual from Merlin)
Mr CoveyPurchased this for my trainer wheel and it shifts smoothly. Not as light as the Ultegra and quality not as good but for a trainer, it makes no difference. Still a great cassette for the price.
GarethPerfect, Ok, not a light as a 105, ultegra etc, but smooth changes under load....absolutely no complaints
Mr ChessonWorks well and as tough as old boots!
Miss RibeiroIt is a little heavy, but it is an honest product with a good price. I purchased it to my training road bike and I am pretty satisfied.
Andrew CGood value product that's proved durable.
Mr HoltExcellent product, use this on my spare/turbo wheel. Not the slickest cassette I've used but works a treat on a spare wheel and pretty much bomb proof.
Mr WhartonDecent quality for the price. The shift seems as good as on any other Shimano cassettes.
Mr BIRDThis is a decent cassette and not that different from a 105 one but much cheaper. It has got a shiny finish but the weight was very reasonable and looks like it will be very hard wearing. Ideal for training wheels where a 25 sprocket can come in handy
Mr BellBought to use on a trainer wheel great price and shifts as well as my cassette on my normal wheels. Usual shimano quality.
DazWorks a treat, no complaints. The 11t allows me to get the ratio I need on the flats.
Mr MonaghanUsed this cassette for climbing Alpe d'Huez last week and it worked great. I bought the 12-30 ratio and it gave me peace of mind in case I found it too tough.
