Hi

I need a replacement cassette for my Cube LTD Pro (2010). The specs suggest the current cassette is a "Shimano HG50 11-32".

Can anyone recommend a suitable replacement? I've already come across 2 HG50's (14.99 and 15.99 on crc/wiggle) but can't identify the difference.

Can any experts point me in the right direction?

Cheers

    Not a lot. Just buy one to suit budget.

    I would if I knew it would fit/is suitable. There are so many out there, how do I know if I am buying the right one?

    OK, can anyone advise what the difference is between these 2 then?

    Anything described as cassette, 11-32, and of the correct speed, 9 in your case I think.

    Apart from random sizes, nothing.

    The difference is the ratios. The £14.99 one is 11-32 (common MTB size) and the £15.99 one is 12-23 (more common on road)
    Giant TCR advanced 2 (Summer/race)
    Merlin single malt fixie (Commuter/winter/training)
    Trek superfly 7 (Summer XC)
    Giant Yukon singlespeed conversion (winter MTB/Ice/snow)
