    SRAM OG 1070 cassette Question

    Hi,

    recently had an FSA Energy Compact crankset installed on my bike. I put a new Ultegra 10sp chain on, and a 12-23 Ultegra cassette. Worked flawlessly! Beautiful!

    I then installed a 12-26 SRAM OG cassette, for a pending hill adventure of a mere 200km. It is noisy, shifts bad, and clicks in 5th onwards. Am I missing something here or is it not as compatible as it is meant to be? The cogs are around the correct way, it's as fine tuned as it has EVER been. It works sweet the moment I put a wheel with a Shimano cassette on. :S

    The specs say that a SRAM chain is recommended, but should it make that much of a difference?

    Help please, 6 days before the race and I'd like to sort something if I can :S

    Cheers,
    Brendon

    Just re adjust the RD for that cog. I'm assuming it is the same wheel right?

    same wheel or diff wheel, doesn't matter

    I cannot get it to adjust to a point where it shifts good or stops making noise.

    How old is the chain you are using? If it's a bit worn and it wore to match the Shimano cassette, the new SRAM cassette may not work well. Try a new chain no matter what the make.
