Good call i reckon. IMO the shifting sacrifice you have to make to get a 50T with the cheaper cassettes isnt worth it. 32x46 will get you up most places!Thanks rangersac and oliosky.... i have even considered going back to 11-42T......... i've ordered the 11-46T in black (faster). See how we go, at $89 seems like a bargain especially compared to other websites........
The 11-50T could have been an option, especially at $89 as well, but i've already bought a 32T new chainring and that would just be too easy (such a thing?).... but had i gone 34T i might have given it whirl.
I have one of these from Cyclingdeal along with the XT 11 speed rear derailleur and XT chain. Works fine, almost too well.Anyone purchased Sunrace via Cyclingdeal??
Thinking about going MX8 to replace my worn XT cassette... and at $89 seems a good deal https://www.cyclingdeal.com.au/buy/sunrace-mx8-11-speed-cassette-11-46t/CSMX8-1146
Ya i believe MS is all steel and MX is alloy for the big rings......... so the MX8 (11-46) and MX80 (11-50) should be good to go at $89.... glad to hear you're happy as mine's on the way...... with new RF narrow wide, new chain, and XT derailleur. Been a couple years since new cassette so think it was well overdueI think they have both all-steel or steel/alloy options (maybe MX vs CX... perhaps just made that bit up) with corresponding weight difference, so maybe that’s what you’d heard about re good/bad options?? I got the 11-46 from cyclingdeal, I’ve been impressed by how slick the shifting has been (and this was coming off an XT).
