Do you want to learn more about bike cassettes?
Most bikes today have a gear-shifting system that makes it easier for the rider to pedal. By using the gear shifters on the handlebars, the rider can change the position of the chain on both the chainrings and the cassette, which improves performance when going uphill or downhill.
It's important to keep the cassette well-maintained by using lubricants to prevent friction between the chain and the teeth of the cogs from damaging the material. If these parts aren't lubricated regularly, they will wear out faster and have a shorter lifespan.
How to choose a bike cassette?
A 10-speed cassette is standard on mid-to-high level road bikes, although some bikes offer options of up to 11 speeds. Entry-level bikes have 8 or 9 speeds.
When referring to cassettes, it means the complete set of cogs, which are mounted on the freewheel or the cassette body.
Cassettes can have anywhere from 7 to 10 cogs. The nomenclature used for cassettes reflects only the number of teeth on the smallest and largest cogs. For example, in a typical mountain bike cassette, the nomenclature would be 11/32, which is the case for a 9-speed cogset, as it has a small cog of 11 teeth, then 12, 16, 18, 21, 24, 28, and finally a large cog of 32 teeth. However, road bike cassettes can have more cogs, which allows for more speeds.
