Hi
Looking for 8 speed dura-ace/ultegra or similar SRAM cassette 12-21 and 12-25. Shimano dont seem to do them anymore. Any ideas on where to get new ones? Must be new.

thanks

The only new ones I have been able to find with that kind of sproket range are Sunrace cassettes. As you say shimano don't make them any more.

How do the sunrace cassettes compare to dura-ace or what is the equivalent shimano level?

You can also try www.roseversand.de

The problem is not that they aren't available, just that Madison don't bother to import them.

I have not compared a sunrace to dura race cassette. I suspect they are not directly equivelent given there relatively inexpensive price, maybe the duraace is lighter, but they look good and feel good. The one good thing in their favour is that they are available in this country without having to buy in from Germany. It think they are more comparable to the HG30/50 range.
