Cassettes. Are they the same spacing? Is their any difference? What are the differences if any?
Thanks

How about 10? My Recon cassette doesn't like my SRAM. The mech is 9 not damaged caged or hanger.

So is it mech not happy or the cassette? Alas i don't have option to replace either and try
Recon say Shimano, SRAM are the same spacing.

Shimano certainly changed the pull ratio of their mechs when they went to 10 speed (and road and MTB apparently differ, just to ice the cake).

I believe that SRAM road and MTB differ, but have no factual basis I can find.
