Not seen any chat on the non starters, but there's at least one bike that failed to make it to the start. :sad:

They all have 3 or 4 separate sproks so the best bet, as advised is to get a stainless steel freehub body. The weight penalty is BA and there is less chance of them cracking open. (In fact they don't at all but the alloy ones do, occasionally, apparently)
Sounds like That's that then.

did they ever do a cassette like that ? Pretty sure even my 9 speed XTR was two lots of 3 on alloy blocks then steel small sprockets - not really much space there to fit an alloy spider on the small cogs . Steel freehubs used to be available for hope hubs, no idea about now, which prevent his but w...

Cassette with full spider?

I'm sick of my cassette digging into my hope cassette body so I'm trying to find a 10speed HG cassette that's wide range (11-42 or more) but with all the sprockets riding on aluminium spiders. Is such a thing available?

Sunrace do a cassette with the first 6 on spiders but the bottom 4 are separate.

It’s a perfectly good winter Emergency shelter.
However BB rules require a two piece shelter system as per the organisers wishes.
