Mr Coletti good cassette for older Litespeed bike, works great
jschwing11 As advertised, great price.
David Perfect cassette for my kid's cross-bike. Cheap and easy to install.
Mr Daley Just a very good entry level cassette that I use on my general purpose road bike. Fits the bill nicely
Mr Reid I bought this in 11-30 format to replace the 12-26 on my wife's road bike which actually has a triple up front with a 30 tooth inner .. so with 1:1 gearing she should Queen every mountain now!
Charles This is my second unit in 8 years. I use this cassette for long distance touring and is perfect for my needs. Merlin prices are ausually very good.
Nathan I bought a few same size cassettes in case they became redundant to the broader ratio cassettes. 13-25 ratio cassettes were bought with advice from a bloke I bought my bike from. The close ratio can find a preferred load easy into likes(lol) of headwinds and such. I like them and at the end of the day it is just a personal preference
Alan Slightly wider spread of gears to improve my CX bike's range. Perfect replacement for the old worn out set
Penman Good quality, easy to fit and set up - works like a dream
Mr J Allen Bought to replace aging cassette on my winter bike. Good close gear ratios not worried about the weight as I actively aim to keep my winter bike heavy. Great service from merlin too.
Terry Cheap derailleur to keep those old 9 speed bikes in top mechanical order. Good price from Merlin too.
Mr D This is a solid cassette. 9-speed is all you need. 12-27t, running 38/50 front chainrings gives plenty of range but keeps it tight in the middle of the cassette, so changing up/down doesn't leave you over/under geared into a headwind/on a descent. No point buying a more expensive cassette unless you're trying to turn pro.
Mr Marchant Easy to fit to new wheels, had same cassette on spare winter wheels and has performed well. Keeping the chain clean and changing frequently seems to be the key to keeping the cassette in good condition.
Mr Rawlinson Fit for purpose. Not the nice bling, but definitely does the job without fuss.
Mr Raybould Well packaged by Shimano, lovely and sparkly. Easy to fit with the correct Shimano tool, and a like-for-like replacement for me - I'm likely to get another in another few thousand miles.
Mr Powell No complaints.. works just fine. Shifting is smooth and precise although that may be more to do with the rear mech. No problem.
Mr Nuttall Easy to fit and just right to replace my old worn out cassette.
Mr mcgivern Excellent, speedy service which has become the trademark of this company. Getting the cassette promptly meant I didn't miss any club rides (keeping me away from the biscuits)! Shimano is good quality! Also good price from Merlin
Mr McMonagle Great! Arrived in good time. Especially as I ordered them Christmas weekend. Black, round and look great. Everything you want from a wheel. You guys are Definitely going on my favourites list!
