• Description
  • It is possible to fit 7 speed cassette sprockets to an 8 speed cassette body but it is not recommended.
    • 4mm of spacers are needed to compensate for the missing sprocket.
    • Because you can't fit the spacers under the cassette lockring, you need to fit all the spacer/s behind the large sprocket.
    • This has the effect of moving the sprockets to the right (toward the frame) by about 1.75mm so your gears would need significant adjustment.
    • It also leaves a large gap between the large sprocket and the spokes - might not cause direct trouble but looks like it could be a bit of a chain swallower.
  • Our policy? Stock and sell 7 speed cassette wheels when needed rather than making to with only 8 speed wheels in stock.
