Ok so this evening I found an old cassette spacer ring and gave it a go but I ended up with too much spacing - the cassette lockring won't reach the threads
It will probably be ok if I grind the 3 pins of the back of the cassette - Ill get there one way or another :)

Those 3 pins likely hold the cassette together. How large a spacer do you need? Different thicknesses easily available. Fit the cassette on with the lock ring and use a feeler gauge to work it out.

eBay is good for stuff like this if your local bike shop can't help, just search for cassette spacer in cycling.

I've just be hoping for a quick fix but yeah I'm going to have to measure it properly and go from there

I only used a 1mm spacer but because it sits against the cassette pins on the back it moved the cassette outward more than 1mm. The pins previously where sitting in cut aways.

I could buy a 12 up cassette but I've a short cage mech and 22/32/42 front rings set up so I'm trying to use this 11/28 I've got

This is designed to fit around the pins

I thought looking at it thay it would fit around the pins but couldn't get it to line up properly with all 3 or push over them.

I'll take a another look at it tonight

Cheers

Hi all

I made a spacer for behind the cassette in the end. Used 0.7mm steel plate seems to have done the trick

Sounds good – nothing like coming up with one's own DIY solution. Reminds me I've got to have a go at building my own custom 7speed cassette...
