Shimano spacer

I appear to have 'mislaid' my Shimano spacer :( This is one that goes on the rear of the 10 speed cassette and sits between the spokes and cassette. The chain is now rubbing on the spokes.
What is this part called - is it just the 'spacer at the back of the cassette' or does it have a name/part number and are they easily available?

  • Yes it's just a spacer, link for ribble cassette spares if not there give them a phone or go to your Lbs.

    Err no, it's not the 3mm Shimano spacer allowing you to use a 7sp cassette on a 8sp hub on that Ribble link.

    LBS should be able to provide one.

    Or you could buy another cassette, use the spacer from that and put it the cupboard for when you need to replace your current cassette ?

    Think you should read my post again before giving it err no.

    Not much use though was it. Only one spacer and that was the wrong one.
    The Shimano Pt No is Y-357 65231. Your LBS should have or be able to get one.
  • Another censored who can't read if you notice the end of the post i do actually mention going to the LBS.

    Think you really need to get a life mate.

    As for not being much use i wasn't going to trawl through every bike site just to see if i could find one for him,think the guy is intelligent enough to do that for himself.

    If you can not post useful information why bother at all. My comment was aimed at the link you provided, not the suggestion that he visit his LBS. As for trawling it was as easy to get the Shimano No as it was to find the Ribble link.
    As for getting a life, I have one thank you. There is no need to get abusive on here.
  • Like your post on gearing then which was just the same as salsa's.
    People like you need to stop being obnoxious if you do not like getting replies that you do not like.

    The whole point of the link kinda says it all,cassette spares i didn't check to see what was there and like i also said in the post if it's not there then phone them to see if they have one or go to the LBS.

    At the end of the day in my judgement i was being helpful and along come you and the other prat and all you've done is repeated what was in my post.

    The only difference being you added a part number.

    Really think you should look at yourself before coming on here and creating issues about nothing.

    allezscotia. There is no need to be rude. As for my post on gears if you read it you will see that I gave the full modification needed for an MTB cassette. Salsa omited to mention the need to change the rear mech and chain.
    My last word on this.

    And what was your initial post if not rude, your a pillock who should just be avoided forever more.

    Dude you posted a useless link, and they rightly corrected you and you didn't like it - they weren't being rude. You, sir, were being rude.
    I like bikes...
