Hello everyone,

I have a Suntour 7S freehub which sports 15 identical and equally spaced splines. At first glance, I thought it was a Uniglide body, but then no, it isn't. What sort of cassette does this take?

I might have just found the answer, it's a Suntour proprietary spline design, PowerFlo

Are cassettes available? Or is the hub technically redundant?

Halfway between the two. They are available, but they are unnecessarily expensive because of their rarity. Not sure if this applies to hubs as well. I guess less so, as they are less prone to wear and tear than cassettes, so they might not be as rare (yet).
Shame, apparently they were excellent products. This surely feels very solid and exceptionally smooth!

Get hold of Francis Thurman “Hard To Find Bits” he sells on eBay. He might have a cassette.

Thanks. Not sure how I can search for the name of the seller though...

That's a non-microdrive one, so you'll be looking for one with a smallest cog 12 or greater.
