      Comments about Sram PG-970 9-Speed Road Cassette:

      Works as intended and is light weight. Complemented my new light weight wheelset perfectly. For the price, you can't beat the PG70 series SRAM cassettes. The next step up (OG1090) is more than 4x the price. Best bang for the buck.

        I purchased this cassette to place on a second set of wheels to be used with a trainer. They were a direct replacement for my bicycle. Excellent price and good quality. Would recommend this cassette for average rider needing to save some money.

        Comments about Sram PG-970 9-Speed Road Cassette:

        Replaced a VERY worn rear cassette (skipping, the whole works) and am pleased with the result. Works as expected. Not the fastest shifting, but 90% acceptable for racing, and totally fine for commuting.

        from Concord, CA

        About Me Avid Cyclist

        Pros

        • Adds a little more speed
        • Cadence improved
        • Shifting is much smoother

        Cons

        • None

        Best Uses

        • Road Biking

        Comments about Sram PG-970 9-Speed Road Cassette:

        I ride in hills, and I seem to be able to always find the right gear. I have a triple crank 50X39X30 and now my cadence is pretty natural. My previous rear cassette was a 12 to 26 and I could never find the right gear.

          Comments about Sram PG-970 9-Speed Road Cassette:

          Nashbar's description is right on the mark. I wore out my Shimano 105 cassette. This one replaced it and saved me a few bucks. Now, it shifts like it did when the bike was new. I wished I could have bought a 12x25 to match the 105 spec, but once I changed my Flight-Deck computer to match, then there is hardly any difference. The 26-cog makes sense because the jump from 23 to 25 was very small. The 26 gives me a slightly greater gear range.
