Hi all,

When installing a new cassette on a new wheel should any lube or grease be applied ? And if so where?

Thanks guys
Chris

I always apply a moderate coating of greas (same grease that I use on the bearings) to the splined section of the freewheel/cassette. Not that it's a moving part, just do it to keep most moisture out. As for the actual cogs of the cassette I lube up (after installation) with the with the same lube I use on the chain. I lube the cogs and chain all at the same time.
