Hi all,

I need to replace my 11-28 cassette on my bike and looking around the prices are mental!

The new Red cassette is around £200!
The Force 11 speed one is around £50.

Will I really notice any difference?? I'm not racing, a weekend warrior only and only reason I got Red groupset as I got a super deal.

Cheers all.

    Functionally no difference. Shimano cassettes are also compatible.

    Mate has a red cassette - its REALLY LOUD. The others aren't. So thats about all you'd notice.

    I have a Red cassette much noisier than ultegra and force, ultegra is usually the cheapest.
    If you keep your eye out on Amazon you sometimes get bargains picked up the Red 11-28 for £99 and an etap BB30 50/34 Chainset up for £144.

    No, you won't notice any difference. go with the Force cassette.
