      Comments about SRAM PG-850 8-speed Cassette:

      I have used this cassette for several years on recumbents and touring bikes. This is probably one of the best products for both price and durability. I have gotten as much as 13,000 miles before change out. Avalible in several gear ranges for road or mountain/touring

        Comments about SRAM PG-850 8-speed Cassette:

        Beautiful. Smooth shifting. Easy to install. Durability a possible question mark. I don't know how long a cassette should last but, for information, I just had to replace one of these after 7050 miles. It lasted through three chain replacements. (I have a Nashbar chain checker and change chains at the .75 setting.)

        Other relevant information: 80% of my riding is done on cogs 3, 4, and 5--and these were the ones that started skipping with a new chain indicating need for cassette replacement. (Other cogs appeared OK so I obviously give those three cogs much more than usual use.) More balanced use of all cogs might mean much longer cassette life. Anyway, I like the performance and have now purchased two more PG-850 cassettes to have on hand as needed.

          Comments about SRAM PG-850 8-speed Cassette:

          Bought this cassette to outfit a new set of wheels. I didn't want to have to swap cassettes between wheel sets, and slow down my riding time. (Don't get enough of that, as it is.)
          Went on and tightened down easily, and shifts smoothly, both up and down the cogs. Haven't had any problems with it.

            Comments about SRAM PG-850 8-speed Cassette:

            It was time to re- do my drive train. The original was SRAM, so I got this. It was the second lowest cost option available. I would have got the cheaper model but the gearing on this set was better suited for me.

            To tell the truth, I am using this somewhat modified. The original rim on my bike was giving out, but I had a back up wheel. The only problem was the back up was only set up with a 7 speed cassette. However I found my original 9 speed cassette would work if I left off the first (smallest) cog. This was an 11 and I seldom if ever really need an 11. When I got this new cassette, I needed to replace the stock spacers with the 9 speed spacers, which are slightly but significantly thinner. This was necessary to both ensure all 8 cogs would fit on my free hub body as well to to ensure the shifting would index properly. Thus modified, it works just fine.

                Only had the unit for a short period of time but so far seems dependable. The new ratios, compared to my ol set are a nice change.

                Comments about SRAM PG-850 8-speed Cassette:

                Got this to make steep hills less steep. I replaced my short cage derailleur with a long cage so that I could use this cassette on my road bike. The combination of Sram 850 cassette with the Nashbar long cage derailleur is a nice combination for easy climbing, especially if you're a casual cyclist in a hilly region. The plated finish looks nice, too. At half price plus an additional 20% off, it's a steal. I bought two and am glad I did.
