Got this cassette to replace the same one on my road bike that has worn out. I live in a mountainous area and need the extra tall gears for those mountain roads. I use SRAM cassettes and chains on my road and mountain bikes, the best quality gear for the price.
I bought this cassette for my lower level starter bike, which I've put about 600-750 miles on. There's really not a better cassette for the money, and buying last year's model gets you more savings. Very happy with this purchase. Shifting is crisp, works with SRAM and Shimano derailleurs, and looks nice and shiny still.
