Do I need a special hub for an 11-21 cassette?
I need to get a new cassette to go with a wheel that I'd like to dedicate for my trainer. I just ordered a SRAM 970 11-21 cassette from pricepoint but then saw this from Sheldon Brown:
"Cassettes that feature an 11 tooth sprocket are intended to fit "C" (Compact) hub bodies only. The spline grooves in the 11 do not run all the way through (it wouldn't be strong enough if they did.)"
The wheel that I want to use is a Bontrager Select that came on my Trek 1200 with a 12-25 cassette.
Will this cassette fit my hub without modifications? I don't want to have to mess with any customizations or having to adjust the derailleur when I swap wheels on the bike.
