Are there any cheap 11sp cassettes that are all individual cogs and spacers like the old 9sp / 10sp sram ones? Would like to drop 7 or 8 on a SS HG hub with an old x1 rd.

Sram cassettes are based on the XD driver that will not allow you to run individual cogs. Shimano might be able to do it but I have never seen it. With cogs that big, they would be very heavy to have all individual cogs. Most of the cassettes are based on functioning as a single unit allowing them to cut away metal and lighten it up.

Sram pg 1130? The three biggest cogs are on a spider. All others are singles I think...

Some of the Sunrace 11sp cassettes are five individual cogs and then two spiders of three each IIRC, so you could omit the last spider and have a 8sp setup.

Don't forget that SRAM road cassettes exist, and they are not XD.

Picked up a pg 1130 11-42. Three biggest on a spider and the rest were single.

Why not just get the GX DH cassette?

Its going on a HG single speed hub not XD, and I already have an x1 11 speed rd sitting around to pair it with.

The GX DH cassette is not XD, only the X01 DH cassette is.

Wider range on the 1130.

Have we ever argued about chain lube? My boys recommend A.T.B or T9 or Dumonde. I've been using Squirt. What do you recommend? I like cheap.

Vote for Pedro (ice wax)

Or get a ultrasonic cleaner and crockpot for fun experiments.

What conditions do you ride in? Around here its super dusty and thicker lubes like dumontech and anything waxy cakes up like crazy.

I’m currently using motorex lube cause I was given a bunch of it but its pretty good.
