Anyone ever used or setup a TA Kheops cassette..Have a 8spd 12-23th version in silver. Bought it late 90's to run with Dura Ace but never fitted it.

Its that one of the Aluminium ones? They are race day specials only - don't last long but are frighteningly light.

You can type name of cassette in Google and it show You discussion in Weighweenies on first, guys there used this cassetes. According to most of their words they are generally for racing and in training purposes they are very bad, because they are very, very soft. Don't fight for every gram and buy durable one.
