    OGR!!!

    Getting ready to ride my bike up OGR with my new 11-46T gears!

    High quality and great range with one minor niggle

    by

    High quality you'd expect from Shimano XT with great shifting and a nice wide 11-46 range. The only reason for four stars is lazy Shimano just used the same gearing as the 11-42 cassette and whacked on a 46 to replace the 42. This gives a pretty big jump from 37->46 which shifts fine, but you feel it. This isn't a deal breaker though, just a niggle. Great cassette and I love having the 46 there for when it's needed.

    Ditch the dinosaur!

    My previous cassette was looking like the back of a Stegosaurus .... the new XT cassette is now smooth as silk and doesn't miss a beat!

    Great product and service

    Packing-Shipping time-good price

    It came in a good packing and shipping was really fast and on time

    I ordered 11-46
    the thing that the site didn't mention is that this size of cassette (11-46) is for a single chainring on the front

    Thank you from MTB Direct for the nice service and good price
