new Centaur cassette--should I use it yet?
When I put on my new chain (I change them every 2,000 miles), I had all kinds of skipping of gears when the chain was under pressure. (BTW, the cables are set right, etc.) All indications are that I need a new cassette (it has about 14,000 miles on it). I ordered a new one by mail. While waiting for it, I decided to put on my old chain back on. The old, stretched chain and the worn cassette are a good combo and they ride smoothly together.
Should I ride this combo until both the cassette and the chain are really toast? Will that create problems for other components?
