Hi, I'm looking to sell my bike... It has deore xt wheels with a 9 speed cassette...

I also have a set of older black parallax deore LX wheels with 8 speed cassette...

Can I put the 9 speed cassette on the LX hubs? I want to keep the XT wheels

See attached pic of LX M565 wheels

Thanks!

Yup, you should be fine with that.

Are you 100% sure on that?

Thanks!

I believe so. 8 speed and 9 speed cassettes are pretty similar widths, if you want to run an 8 speed cassette on a 9 speed, you only need a small spacer. You should be fine, I've always swapped 8 and 9 speed cassettes on the same wheel without hassle, it it takes an 8 it will take a 9 I'm sure. Xtr m950 was 8 speed but they didn't update the hub for m952 as far as I'm aware and that was 9 speed. Same for xt m737 and m739. Your lx hub is of the same era and 8 speed originally.

Sorry, I've waffled on.
