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

          It was time to replace a worn 9 speed cassette. I also hoped to upgrade the part as well. The original cassette was a 12/25 Tiagra. The new 12/27 is much better. I can maintain tempo while climbing with the 27. Happy I made the change.

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

            I upgraded from a 12-25 cassette on stock Alex 350 32 spoke wheels to Vuelta Corsa Lites with 11-23 cassette, what an impressive difference, accelerates nicely and looks sporty. My AL-1 is my first road bike/experiment changing out cranks first, the fork from stock aluminum to fiber carbon, and now the wheels and cassette, the wheels and cassette gave it a complete new feel. Bring on the San Diego Bike Tour!

              I had to replace my rear cassette after 4K miles of commuting and I like the feel and smoothness of this much better than the original.

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

                      This is a great cassette, with great shifting (Dura Ace 9-speed setup). But as I'm getting older and looking for value buys, I'm starting to wonder about technology that trickles down. In this case, a recently purchased HG-50 (Tiagra level) equivalent 12-27 gearing cassette for my cross bike shifts equally well, weighs only 10g more (232g vs. 242g), and costs less than half of the Ultegra. Your choice!
