    When it works, it works well. When it breaks on a steep climb, it sucks...

    Pros
    Smooth and quiet shifting

    Cons
    Durability...I've broken 2 of these cassettes in the last year. Both cassettes broke at the rivets where the 4,5, and 6 cog are fastened to the spider.

    I overlooked upgrading my cassette far too long. This is much better than the stock SRAM cassette and saved some weight too

    Pros
    smooth shifting, solid yet lightweight design

    Cons
    nothing yet

    Great longevity and shift feel.

    Pros
    Ran this for 5 seasons. Seamless shifting. Even in race situations.

    Cons
    Kind of expensive to replace.

    Find a gear ratio you like, instal it and ride it until your legs fall off.

    Pros
    Light, shifts great, makes every stock bike feel better (unless they have an XTR stock). If you run a 9 speed drivetrain... you should probably be running this (or the XTR) cassette.

    Cons
    It doesn't come stock on most bikes (it's cheaper for bike co. to instal the SRAM PG970's)

    A sweet shifting, good looking, and very lightweight cassette. Lasts longer than Shimano's lower end products but still needs love after the ride to keep it performing like the day you bought it. You can easily find one in the $60 range so it's not going to break the bank either.

    Pros
    Lightweight. Shift great. Replaceable cogs. Offered in two different sprocket ranges.

    Cons
    NOT cheap but you won't be disappointed either.

    If these could be like 50 bucks cheaper I would be very happy. As it is I get about 1 season of riding out of one. I am not a maintenance freak though, so maybe if you clean your chain more than me it will last longer.

    Pros
    Light, smooth flawless shifting

    Cons
    expensive
