Im pretty much shimano orientated so this stumps me a little.

Simply screw it on. A screw on cassette of course.

If its wobbly and already screwed on tight, it sounds like the bearings are knackered. You'll have to crack it! (With 2 whips, no less!) :twisted:

Mmmm. The wheels have hardly been used - brake surface is hardly touched and the hubs are pretty shiney - think its just loose.

Cant imagine its going to shift very well either looking at the low tech teeth...

screw it on and then ride it up a hill - the best and quickest way to tighten a screw on cassette. Feels odd and you'll have to reset the indexing after you've done it, but hey, no extra tools needed!

Nah - they came on the Trimble you see there - just cleaned them up. Matching pair with Trek Matrix rims.
