Shimming a cassette

Posted on
  • Is it possible to shim a cassette at all? I’ve got a wheelset where the indexing is just a tiny bit off against my turbo (and a winter wheelset) and having to tweak it is starting to irritate me.

  • yup, you can get shims. if you have a friendly lbs that does repairs you can usually drop in and get them for not a lot

  • Both SRAM and Shimano have recently released shims for cassettes that made noise and didn't shift ideally. How much are you talking?

  • It's in the range of annoying clicking so probably no more than 0.5-1mm out. If the LBS can't shim it I'll just get them to index it for the wheel I use on the road then figure it out later.
