Folks: Having come from a diamond frame world where I used a REGINA 14-16-18-21-28-32 on the the
rear wheel, I find myself at a loss in the bent world! With my Sabre three rings in the front
(52-42-30) and using SPRAM Rocket shifters, I would like to have the following on the rear wheel
14-16-17-18-19-21-24-28-34. Is this possible and if so where do I get the SRAM/Shamino rear
cassette. Richard Rodgers

The closest I see in an SRAM is 11-12-14-16-18-21-24-28-34. Shimano cassettes can be disassembled,
as I remember. IF you can get the desired cogs for the appropriate locations, one can construct a
custom cassette.

happy trails, rorschandt

Called the folks at Harris and the custom cassette is under construction and will be on its way
soon. Thanks for the help Richard Rodgers

The largest cogs aren't necessarily linked together. That's only the case on the more expensive
cassettes.

Email Sheldon. He'll be able to tell you if your combination can be kitbashed* together.

Shimano has a 12-34. Their isn't much of a difference between 11-34 and 12-34 nor the the 11-32.

You should try something like a 48 - 38-26 with a 11-25.

If you are going that route.

My problem is finding correct gearing for the 20 inch wheel. Shimano is coming out with the capreo
which is 9-26 which might work better for a 20 inch wheel.

http://store.yahoo.com/vss-electronics/pr-114dg.html For me BIG Difference. I ride most in 52/18.
however because we have some rather "nice" hills here in eastern indiana and western Ohio I "enjoy"
the opportunity to use such gears as 52/28 and 52/34. On that rare day when the wind is at my back
and the ground is level the 52/14 is useful. The other 16,17,18,19, allow for small changes in
weather and landscape. Yes, I use the whole package. Richard Rodgers

Sorry should be 42/34 and 30/34 not 52/34! Richard Rodgers.

My experience has convinced me that the best solution for small diameter drivewheels is a step-up
jackshaft.

For instance, with a 47-406 Comp Pool tire on the drivewheel, I have a very useful gear inch range
of 19-120 with a 13/20T step-up, an 11-34T XT cassette, and a 44/32/22T Deore crankset. Shifting is
also excellent with XT front and XTR rear derailleurs and SRAM Plasma shifters.
