Cheap improvement with 2 extra teeth

By Daniel

Verified Buyer

Comments about Shimano CS-HG400 9 Speed Cassette:

Cheap cassette, nothing fancy, little heavy compared with high-end series but about the same weight of my old HG-50, i bought this cassette to gain 2 extra teeth in the bigger gear (yes in the other hand you lose some "top speed") I'm a beginner in mtb and i'm not too strong yet, so this makes a noticeable improvement on those extra heavy uphills.... Make sure your derailleur can handle 36 teeth

great price and nice range for 9 speed but...

By RLB

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Shimano CS-HG400 9 Speed Cassette:

can't beat the price, the extra couple teeth on the big cog make a significant difference climbing but I learned its not good on aluminum free hubs... chewed into my aluminum free hub and had to be removed with the use of 2 chain whips, punches and large rubber mallet. The way it makes contact with the fee hub its like 9 sharp cogs, other +$$$ cassettes have a solid body the cogs are mounted to so the free hub contacts fewer but much wider splines. Check out the SunRace MX3 10 speed cassette for an example on the body holding the cogs (I can't find any examples of a 9 speed built like this anymore) The CS-HG400 is a good cassette at great price just make sure you have a steel free hub

Shimano 9 speed Cassette Review

By BE

Verified Buyer

Comments about Shimano CS-HG400 9 Speed Cassette:

I put this on my mountain bike that had a regular Cassette on it. I wanted a little bigger ring in the back to convert my bike to a 1X. It works well. I live in New Jersey so the short punchy climbs are still a challenge with only nine in the back but the extra two teeth definitely help.

Very Solid Cassette in a 1x9

By Free

from Knoxville, TN

Verified Buyer

Comments about Shimano CS-HG400 9 Speed Cassette:

For the money, I couldn't beat a 9-speed cassette that had a 12-36 range. It works great, and slotted in perfectly into a 1x9 drivetrain rebuild I was doing.

This is on the lower end of Shimano's cassettes, so it doesn't shift *quite* as quickly as some other cassettes I've used in the past(hence the one star removed), but it's not given me any real issues at all. I'm very pleased with the cassette overall.

Comments about Shimano CS-HG400 9 Speed Cassette:

This cassette works great with my initial XT and now a Deore derailleur. I wanted to take a cog out and put a 42t on there but you CANNOT do this with this cassette. All of the cogs are together, with only the smallest (12t) cog being separate, the rest are a single unit. 4 stars for not being able to customize, but so far hasn't given me any trouble.

  • Q:

    Will this work with a 2014 Shimano Sora with a GS (Mid) cage and a 50/34 crank?
    Asked on 7/12/2016 by Fly2High

    1 answer

    • A:

      The official answer is no. The longer answer is maybe, but it depends on a few things. Realistically, the Sora medium cage wasn't designed to shift larger than 32 in the back, but depending on exactly where your derailuer hanger is (it actually varies slightly on different models), if you crank your B-limit to the max, you could probably get it to shift 36, but the downside is less chain wrap, especially on the smaller cogs, which means you might see diminished responsiveness in your shifting, especially if you're using a brifter. If you're on barcons, or better yet, friction shifting, I'd say you'll be fine.
