9 cog cassette doesn't fit my freehub! Not even without smallest cog.
Bike has 8sp (revo)shifter, but only 7 cog cassette - something the previous owner did. I have had it with the shifting issues on this MTB, so I decided to actually get myself an 8 cog cassette for it (of course, I know I will have to tune the RD). Well, the LBS tells me the cheapest 8sp cassette they can order, would cost me 25 EUR - no way, I think to myself, and went home with the intent of fitting a 9sp cassette that I have in a drawer.
The problem is, I can't fit the last cog on the freehub, the freehub is too short. If I, however, remove that last (smallest) cog, the lockring that threads onto the freehub and keeps the cassette in place, doesn't keep the cassette firmy in place in that case - there's about 1/2 mm play there.
What to do?
