I remember there were ones made by Inferno back in the day at least that was what I used to look at in the BIKE workshop catalogs. I''l see if i can locate them in the boxes which they are stored in, just moved house so I kind of lost track of them at the moment.

Inferno cassettes in the end probably are rebadged recon cassettes, which are still available today (recovering weight weenie here, with occasional fallbacks :lol:)

cheers

Maybe corrected but I think 8,9,10 all use the same free hub just need a spacer on one to run a 7 speed.

Steel chain on an alloy cassette will only have one winner. The chain will eat the cassette a lot faster than a steel cassette.
