New cassette for 7 speed Uniglide
I just had a wheel built up from an Shimano 105 7 speed freehub. I read in the forums and was told by my LBS sales guy that the new hyperglide cassettes would fit but when I went to pick up the wheel the mechanic at the shop said they wouldn't. I have attached a couple of crappy pics I took from my cell phone. I would be happy to replace the freehub body if that is what it takes, is it?. If I order the part from Harris (part CS015) will I have everything I need?

You can make HG cogs fit the UG freehub by grinding down the fattest tab on the cogs. You'd still need to use a threaded UG top cog as there are no threads for a HG lockring.
Replacing with HG freehub is also possible and is easy. I did it on my 105 UG hub. There could be issues using the cone nuts from your 105 hub with the HG freehub - i.e. some freehubs require special cone nuts. But it may also work fine. I actually bought a complete HG rear hub (HG-20 I think) and moved the freehub and drive side cone nut over to the 105 hub.

You may need to replace the right-side axle cone to get the bearings sealed properly on the Hyperglide body. Figuring out which cone to use takes time and an experienced eye.
