    Comments about Shimano Ultegra CS-6500 9-Speed Cassette:

    Using this cassette (with the matching Dura-Ace CN-7701 9 speed chain), I've gotten over 8,000 miles on each of two cassettes/chains. The original (same) cassette on the bike lasted only 4,000 with the original chain. Spend the extra bucks on the primo chain!!!

        Comments about Shimano Ultegra CS-6500 9-Speed Cassette:

        Recently purchased a Bacchetta Carbon Aero 2.0 700c recumbent bicycle. Comes with 9 speed Sram X0 derailleur and Grip Shifter. Wanted to have a closer ratio cassette as I have no hills where I ride so don't need big rings on the back with 3 chainrings upfront. Just hate big skips in gears. Purchased this 12-21 Ultegra 9 speed cassette and it is perfect. Shifting has improved significantly. Ultegra group is solid components. Only problem was that one of the aluminum spacers came bent. Just replaced it with one from the Sram 970 11-36 I was replacing.

          Compared to the Sora cassette my bike came with this Ultegra is a beautiful, shiny silver that sparkles like diamonds when clean. More important than the look, however, is the fact that it shifts smoothly & reliably.

                  Comments about Shimano Ultegra CS-6500 9-Speed Cassette:

                  I have this cassette on all four of my bikes. The spacing of the gears is excellent. The shifting is quick and reliable. The cogs seem pretty tolerant of cable adjustment variances. This cassette will work in any situation from flat to moderately steep terrain. For me, 9 cogs is all I need. 10-11-spd systems are overkill. I would only switch to a 10-spd system if Shimano offered a cassette with all the cogs of the CS-6500 plus a 34T. I would use that on my touring bike. For my other bikes, I'd stay with this cassette. This cassette upgraded the performance of my bikes substantially.
