      Comments about Shimano HG31 Altus 8 Speed Cassette:

      I picked up two of these to add to our 'trainer' wheel assemblies, since my fiance's Trek and my GT have this very same cassette. The bikes shift flawlessly and putting them on the hub was extremely simple. Definitely great purchases!
      Also, if not for certain about the fit(like I was)ask Jenson Customer Service, super massively helpful!

          I have used these same gears on Mt. bikes and recumbent bikes. They have given thousands of miles of very good service.

            Lovin Jenson, Lovin how my bike is coming along with this new cassette. I've bought quite a few different items at different times, they all come in a timely manner and give great customer service. Thanks for the call back!

            Owning an xtr, and an xt, the hg 30 shifts just as well, is extremely durable, and even looks good. The matte black finish looks stealthy. Get this cassette! You wont regret it.

            Came factory installed on my Trek Marlin. Grenaded a gear after ~200 miles. 8 broken teeth on one cog. Mechanics at LBS had never seen anything like it. Replaced under warranty with no hassles though, so just a minor setback.

                Comments about Shimano HG31 Altus 8 Speed Cassette:

                Basic cassette that gets the job done. My last cassette and chain (basic SRAM PC 850) lasted about a year of weekly bike rides on trails and around campus(~500mi total) without ever lubing it. I intend to take better care of this one, which should at least double the life of the cassette/chain.

                I could change gears just fine throughout the life of the cassette and they come in a powered black, which is a plus in my opinion.

                With what I get out of these cassettes, I have no reason to try out one that costs 4 times as much.
