    Shimano Ultegra Cassette

    Just got a shiny new ultegra cassette and fitted it fine etc but i have one major problem; The chain skips on pretty much every cog. The chain is pretty old so do you think by geting a new one this will be solved? and do you know if ultegras need an ultegra chain?
    Help is much appreciated
    Cheers
    Marcus

    Get a new chain that is made for the number of gears on your cassette. Your problems will be solved.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    A new chain will probably fix it but a misadjusted cable can also cause skipping.

    Any model Shimano or SRAM chain of the right width (i.e. 8-speed, 9-speed, etc. depending on how many cogs your cassette has) will work fine. You don't need to match the group name.

    Replace the chain.

    And while you're there buy a chain wear gauge.
