I have a new wheel with a Shimano 9-10 hub. I have a new SRAM 9 speed cassette and lockring in the box all held in place with a plastic keeper sleeve.
I've read the Parktool guide to cassette installation and it seems dead easy:
Slide new cassette onto cassette body of new wheel, pushing the plastic keeper out as the cassette slides on to make sure everything goes on in the order it was assembled at the factory.
Install lock ring to torque spec.
I know I should grease the threads of the lockring - any reason I shouldn't lightly grease the inside of the cassette body and the splines on the free hub?
Then I imagine I simply put the new wheel on the bike and make sure the high and low stops on the derailleur are properly set - then adjust the shifting as normal.
Am I missing anything? Is there any chance that I will need anything that is not included with the cassette in the box, like spacers or such?
It just seems so simple to me, I know how to set high and low stops and adjust indexing, but I don't want the derailleur to go into the spokes first time I crank it up.
My current wheel has the exact same cassette on it - but it is a Mavic Aksium wheel. The new one is a Reynolds hub.
