    What's the difference SRAM 11-28 and 11-28T?

    I'm looking to buy a new SRAM cassette and as I'm searching online, it seems that there is a PG 1070 11-28 and a PG 1070 11-28T. I thought these were the same thing, but there seems to a a cost differential and I'm wondering if they are or not.

    The SRAM website doesn't mention the "T" and I just assumed it meant the number of teeth. Does anyone know if there is an actual difference?

    they are the same thing.
    2010 Specialized Secteur Elite with the RBR not-approved Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheelset
    2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er upgraded to SRAM X9 with 1x10 and Stan's Arch EX rims and tubeless.
    2013 Cannondale CAADX-6 Tiagra with 9-speed SLX RD to run 11-32T cassette and Stan's Alpha 400 rims and tubeless
    and
    Some Burton snowboard setups, one with stiff ol' Camber and one with Rocker-Camber-Rocker

    The 11-28T cassette is turbocharged. You should totally get it.

    I'm sure some thought he was.

    What's next 11-28C ????????

    We all know what the C stands for..............yummy carbon..........

    SRAM is also working on an 11-28CC. I hear it's still prototyping, but I can't wait for the ceramic coated carbon cassette!!!!
    It's a fire road.............

    They have enough in common to blast down it.

    You sure it's carbon? Could always be "chrome", 'cuz chrome is always faster than not chrome!
    I don't know if you've ever worked in a shop, but one funny thing that happens all the time is people asking for "700CC" tubes...

    Man, look at the tubes on that one! They must be at least 700CC!

    It's just a difference in the way certain online vendors (like Amazon) list items with the same actual specification but with loose terms for descriptions/options. The "T" is for tooth, as in 28 tooth. They are the same cassettes.

    Can't be chrome..............it's not a car. I do recall chrome is faster, just like a red car being faster than a non red car.

    As for working in a shop, there's no way I'd have that kind of patients. Someone would walk in with a flat, I'd say, "Here's the tube. Thank you come again" If he then asked for me to change it, I'd go, "You can't change a tube?" Talk about flying lead balloons at a bike shop.

    The red thing totally works! And i hint...subtlety is the key...that maybe they should know how to fix a flat by themselves, and offer to show them. It definitely takes some patience. And i don't have much...
