Comments about SRAM PG-980 9 Speed Cassette:

Perfect upgrade for when I changed to a 1x9 set up. Needed to do this anyways, but for the price vs the 990 at the time, this can not be beat. Plus Im not a weight weenie, so those few extra grams I would save with the 990 is not worth it (IMO). Although, the red spider is nice, and they do say bright colors make you faster, lol. Sram makes great stuff and is less complicated than Shimano. I will always look towards sram first.

    Comments about SRAM PG-980 9 Speed Cassette:

    I've had this and the older PG-990 and both marred the freehub body on my American Classic hubs. This is due to the design of the spline interface having spaces where it interacts with the freehub. I've since switched to Shimano XT and I am seeing much less marring of the splines on the freehub. This won't happen to you if your freehub body is steel and not aluminum. Otherwise, this is an excellent cassette that's near indestructible. I was able to get 3 or 4 chains worth of wear out of this since I changed the chain every year. Shifting is excellent, too. Oh, and the Sram cassettes are MUCH better looking IMO.

      I installed this cassette a couple of months ago as part of a major upgrade on my old skool mountain bike. Jensen's service was very good on this particular order. This cassette works as it should, it's QUIET, and the price was good!

      Comments about SRAM PG-980 9 Speed Cassette:

      I put the P980 on my Specialized Enduro Comp, with a new SRAM chain and fairly new X9. I ride single track and freeride. I was blown away at how crisp the shifts were. Only negative I've seen is that the cassette was popping gears pretty bad in heavy rock gardens.

      I've been told SRAM cassettes wear out a little faster than Shimano, but haven't seen it on this one yet.

        this was an upgrade from other heavy cassette on bike. Lost over 100 grams with upgrade and has shifted perfectly in all off road conditions. Price was attractive and quality addition to bike.

        I would give this five stars, but it came with no diagram showing how the parts go on.. Spent a little bit of time trying to figure out where the black spacer was supposed to go(for everybody like me that didn't know, it goes between the largest pair of cogs, and the next set of smaller ones)

        Not ready to drink the 10 speed Kool-Aid yet. I really like 3x9 gearing and 9-speed components are cheap. Didja ya know SRAM 10 speed type 2 rear derailleurs will work with your 9 speed kit? Yeah.
