I'm after a 7 speed cassette for my Dynatech.
I was wondering whether there were superior ones like the M950 8 speed Ti one?

Or any decent lightweight modern ones I could choose?

I am not 100% about this but am sure there was a lot of goldtec stuff for sale on the forum the other day and there was a 7speed cassette there,think it was a 8 speed but as all rings are separate then just take one out.
Same I guess for the other ones,
Action tech,srp and tioga (I have broke a tooth on my tioga one so I guess that's now 7 speed!)

I bought a aluminium 9 speed road cassette from someone on here. Eventually I will make up some larger spacers to make it 8 speed. I also managed to get some titanium (possibly) XTR large cogs on a spider which I was thinking of using with it.

I've bought a 7 speed STX freehub body from CrC to replace the old one with and thought I'd replace the, weighty, cassette too.

Goldtec is a lesser known but hugely respected British component maker who did a lot of titanium work. Their retro bits go for serious cash. They are still in business today. they tend to focus on wheels and drive chain.
