First time using new(ish) Shimano (7700 series) for a build and i've hit a snag. Bought a pair of second hand wheels with Shimano freehub / body. I was told at sale that a 9-speed cassette had been used on these wheels so i've purchased a DA cassette and the correct installation tool. Here's the snag - the tool will not fit inbetween the lockring and the wheel spindle and hence I can't tighten the lockring to the correct Nm. Does this mean that in fact the hub / body is more likely to be 8-speed?
Many thanks in anticipation...
Might be worth PM-ing Rusty Bodie, as he appears to have had similar grief with DA cassette hubs and lockring tools of late (I have in the past too, my own personal fudge is to use a Sachs splined freewheel remover as a lockring tool as the splines are a tad longer). Problem shared is a problem halved, and all that....
