Hi, I was wondering which cassette should be the best matching with my Shimano DEORE XT FH-M737 rear hub. I'm looking for a new 8 speed cassette but I don't how to choose it. Any suggestion? Cheers

Any 8 speed cassette that is shimano compatible will work (same spline pattern). Then up to you regarding teeth range. Typically 12-30/ 11-28. Example model Shimano HG50. Then becomes question of budget. Your local bike shop will probably have a shimano/sunrace, to chose from, saving yourself postage costs.

I tend to go with SRAM as they seem to last longer.
