    Machining 11sp cassette

    Considering going from 10sp to 11sp. Anybody had any experience with:

    11 speeds cassette compatible with 10 speeds hub – Lasco Concept

    They machine Shimano and SRAM 11sp cassettes to fit on 10sp hubs.

    I get the idea and it makes sense, but can anyone confirm if it works in practice? Any fitment or performance problems?

    No reason why it shouldn't work just fine. Never seen one, but it should work.

    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards

    Good to know. They're a little spendy but maybe an option for a 10sp hub with a lot of life left in it.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    I guess if it's a high end wheel, it would be worth it.

    A good friend of mine did one for his son. It worked well. (he is a clock maker by trade)
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    You need to take 1.85mm off the back of the cassette where it butts up against the freehub. That's what the wheels Manufacturing conversion cassette does. They also have some .3mm spacers to fine tune the spacing. I used a Wheels 11 speed conversion cassette on a Shimano Dura Ace 7850 rear hub and 2 - .3 mm spacers so the wheel would interchange with a DA 9000 wheelset without needing adjustments. It worked great.

    My only concern would be if the removal will weaken the cassette too much.

    If there's a machine shop in your area they may be able to do the job.

    Maybe a friend with a lathe.

    Shimano 105 hub. If I go with the Lasco option, the cassette would probably be their SRAM 11-32 and Id run it as a 1X.
