If your cas­sette is look­ing a lit­tle worse for wear, fol­low our tips to re­place it

Cycling Plus (Malaysia) - - TRAINING CAMP -

REAR WHEEL RE­MOVAL

Shift the chain into the small­est sprocket and re­lease the quick-re­lease skewer, al­low­ing the wheel to drop out. You’ll need a chain whip or chain whip pli­ers and a lock­ring tool.

OLD CAS­SETTE OUT

Re­move the lock­ring and then pull the old cas­sette to­wards you to re­move it from the free­wheel. If you want to keep the old one, it’s a good idea to zip-tie it all to­gether in or­der.

PLACE HOLDER

Take the lock­ring and fit it to the front of the cas­sette. Screw it gen­tly into place by hand ini­tially. Tighten the lock­ring suf­fi­ciently to hold the cas­sette in place.

WHIP INTO SHAPE

With the chain whip hold the cas­sette by wrap­ping the chain around the sprock­ets of a larger cog. Fit the lock­ring tool into the lock­ring and turn anti-clock­wise to loosen.

NEW CAS­SETTE ON

Slide the new cas­sette on, in or­der, mak­ing sure you line up all the splines. There will be one wider gap on the rear of each cog, which you need to line up with the dou­ble or wider spline on the free­wheel.

LOCKED IN

You don’t need the chain whip for this step as you will be tight­en­ing in a clock­wise direc­tion and the free­wheel will pro­vide re­sis­tance. Don’t over­tighten as you’ll want to take it off again some day...
