    changing rear cassette

    Hi, I am looking to modify my mtb from a 18sp to a 24sp...do i need to measure between the rear brackets to be sure an 8sp cassette will fit?

    It's more than the dropout spacing. The freehub body for an 8-speed cassette is different (wider) than that that for a 7-speed cassette.
