I'm currently running a 6 speed 13t-18t Shimano 600 cassette and am floundering up the hills, my bike originally came from Holland which is slightly flatter than dear old Blighty.

I'm therefore after a rear cassette that'll give me a little more 'assistance' up the inclines. At this juncture I'll consider anything that is in good nick and an improvement on my current set up.

Cheers,
Steve

I don't actually know as I've never taken it off. Are the 600's usually screw on?

If so it sounds just the job.

I am in need of a 7 or 8 speed screw on cassette, preferably 11-21ish..

A Pm would be great if you have one spare.
