Anyone got sources for Uniglide cassettes?

I've sheered of the teeth of several splined sprockets, so reversing is not an option.


Ebay seems overpriced and sparce

I know I can grind down the large tab of the hyperglide, and will resort to that if necessary. But that would still leave me using the worn out threaded cog as a lockring proxy rather than a usable sprocket.

Which hub? Maybe it's time to consider a freehub body transplant.

Exage- 6 speed. It's on a mountain bike.

What is involved in transplanting a body?

Was also considering replacing the hub with a another, but wasn't sure it's worth the effort to transplant the spokes an rim.

A new seven speed cassette wheel is fairly cheap, not much more than a
cassette body and an axle. They are high-volume commodities, low price.

After that you can use cheap standard seven HG type cassettes. Most six
SIS-index shifters have a 'phantom seven' click already and the
derailleur works on either.
Bonus- you can get seven chain with a snaplink which isn't available in six.

Turns out 3 of the splined cogs still are usable if reversed (the 15 and the big ones, 2 are badly sheered- the 17T is missing 7 cogs, the 19T about the same.

I've assumed the threaded cogs weren't reverseable due to the built in spacer. If that is the reason, could one put a splined spacer in and reverse the threaded cog and either run with it or use it as a spare (this wheel is currently mounted with my studded tire, so if used as a winter swapout, I might not need the spectrum of gears for infrequent use)-particularly if I flipped the index-friction switch to friction when using the low cog?
