Hi, does anyone know the difference in these 8 speed cassettes? Noticed some places state the HG51 is for a 'narrow' chain but i thought an 8 speed chain was just an 8 speed chain? The new chain i have is a KMC X8.99, my old KMC chain says narrow on the links but this new one doesn't

    just the finish.

    both will work fine.

  • Thanks, just found these pics on bike-discount so looks like weight saving is in favour of the HG51
