Hi, am in need of a new 8 speed cassette for my close to 20 year old Ultegra 8 speed STI levers and rear mech set up.
Would a SRAM 8 Speed Cassette work with this mech and levers?

Thanks

Should do perfectly, I bought a SRAM 7 spd cassette and fitted it to a shimano hubbed/equipped bike. Absolutely no difference as far as I could see although I've been told SRAM teeth profiles are slightly higher, possibly to increase precision of shifts or cope with wear.

Probably talking rubbish :roll:

No compatibility issues that I'm aware of. Just bought a 12-26 one myself from Chain Reaction in order to get nice low ratios for 'cross; a nice light bit of engineering - although all the cogs are steel, there's a good deal of machining and cutting-out to keep the weight down.

Thanks for the replies, was about to order a 12-23 from chainreaction, but now out of stock, and nobody else I can find has them for £20 or less :cry:
