Comments about SRAM PG-970 9-Speed MTB Cassette:

I bought this for my cyclocross bike turned sport tourer to expand low gearing for steep hills with light loads. Works well with medium cage Shimano RD and Sora flat bar shifters. Good price and weight is ok. You can't go wrong.

    Comments about SRAM PG-970 9-Speed MTB Cassette:

    Purchased this cassette along with Nashbar 9 speed KCM chain.I am a long time experienced bicycle mechanic, worked @ Jamis bicycles as product development tech. Installed on cyclocross bike with double chainrings & long cage 105 derailleur. Skipped like crazy & won't ride smoothly on cogs.
    Next I installed on my Cannondale tandem with triple front, rear derailleur is a older style Deore XT long cage. Same problem with skipping, changed to a new Sram 9 speed chain with same skipping problem. Put back on my 12x27 Shimano Ultegra cassette and it shifts great with both chains.

      Comments about SRAM PG-970 9-Speed MTB Cassette:

      I bought this to put on a new wheelset I bought. I am not sure what the difference is between this PG-970 for this price and the other PG-970 for $39 except that this is about $10 cheaper. After putting these on my bike with a new chain I found my shifting to be much smoother. On my old cassette and chain I found that shifting from 6 to 7, 7 to 8, and 8 to 9 it would hang for extended periods, then drop abruptly into the right gear. I was not sure what the problem was as it only did it under load and worked perfectly when on a bike stand. After putting this new cassette on with a new chain I have had nothing but smooth shifts and I am very pleased.

            Comments about SRAM PG-970 9-Speed MTB Cassette:

            I was amazed that this 32 tooth cassette worked on my road bike's short cage ultegra derailleur coupled with 39-53 chain rings. Provides an easier gear than a compact with a 27 cog. Great for those really nasty long climbs. I won't keep it on all the time, but when needed I'll use it.
