What new cassette to get for suntour X1 derailleur?
i currently have a suntour 5-spd freewheel cassette with a suntour X1 derailleur on a cannondale SM500 (i think the cassette is original, putting it at 20 years old). cassette is worn and in need of replacement. the shifter is 5-spd indexed. what should i upgrade to? would i be better off finding a new 5-spd cassette or should i look for a NOS suntour on ebay? do they even make new 5-spd cassettes? what would be comparable or better in quality?
