pg830 is lower down in the the pecking order is all, its the ratios which detrmine whether it is more suited to road bikes or mtb.

30% of at halfords doesnt sound much especially knowing what halfrauds prices start at.

crc have 49% of the pg850

and this guy on ebay has em even cheaper.

I always go for a new pg850 over the used xt cassettes you get on here.

the sram cassette is also considerably lighter, although admittedly not of the same quality in terms of longevity

The 8th seems to hang over a bit, then you screw the lockring in. It fits if you can screw the lockring on.

Also a picture of the freehub body you are fitting it to just to check nothing silly is going on. like a 7 speed spacer added or it's actually a 7speed.

nevere used an 830, i imagine its decent enough, but would weight quite a bit more than the 850.

fo a few quid more i would get the pg850
