    DT Swiss Shimano cassette body with 6700 Cassette? Splines short and tall.

    Ok, here's my question. I've seen similar threads regarding the variety of cassette bodies on Wheels. I have a set of DT Swiss wheels with a black Shimano cassette body (shorter splines). The new cassettes I have are Shimano 6700's (11x25, 11x28). These fit on no issue, however the cassettes themselves are built for the deeper splined cassette bodies. So, there's 2-3mm of gap between the cassette and the body. I wouldn't necessarily say there's any slop, but definitely not as much surface area touching between the cassette and the body as I'd prefer. Question: is this an issue? Will it damage the allow cassette body over time? I think this is the only Shimano body DT Swiss makes. I know Easton has both shorter and taller splined bodies, I assume for a reason. Let me know what you think. thanks

    You will be fine. Some cassettes will dig into the freehub body over time, but for most this isn't an issue. Some companies (Chris King comes to mind) offer a stainless steel freehub body.
    You can't fix stupid.
