    Sram 10 speed cassette a bit wobbly on new Shimano Wheels? (RS80)

    This may not be a a problem at all, but I am curious. I have a SRAM 10 Speed cassette (1070) on a new set of Shimano RS80 Wheels. Cassette slides on fine, but it feels awfully loose. It seems fine after tightening the cassette, but should there really be any play at all before tightening? On my other wheelsets, SRAM cassettes fit snug before tightening.

    As long as it's tight when you crank it down it shouldn't be any problem

    I had a similar problem with my Easton wheels. The Shimano 10 speed cassette body has deeper splines equaling less contact with the cassette. Switched it out for a SRAM/Shimano 9-speed body and all is great.

    split pattern looks a bit different. rather than having fat splines, that use two thin lines per spline... perhaps its a slight weight reduction trick????/

    with easton wheels you should either order the sram hub body or go with a shimano cassette cuz the fit is way off if you just shove a sram cassette on em. Splines are very different.

    It's easy to be sure. In the same way as the stem has to extend beyond the steerer fot the top cap to work on threadless headsets, the cassette must overhang the cassette body so the cassette compresses the cassette and doesn't bottom out against the body.

    If you remove the lockring, you'll know for sure at a glance.

    If you don't like it, throw on a 1 mm spacer that Shimano recommends when you install a 10 speed cassette on an 8 or 9 speed wheel.

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