Rachael Gurney's picture

Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories, she also coaches mountain biking and when she's not busy with all the above she's serving coffee from a horse trailer!

Excellent article, covers the subject well. I have been using this cassette for some time, almost since its launch. It's on my m/y 16 Specialized Camber Comp Carbon which features a GX 11spd. mech. All I had to do was change the XD freehub for the normal splined type Spech has them in stock (or did at the time), Lengthen the chain by one set of links and adjust the B screw. The change is fine and works as well as the original set up, however the bike came with Jagwire inner and outer cable and I would suggest fitting this to ensure slickness as this set up is right on the edge of what's possible with this mech.
