    Question: Shimano Cassette and Easton Freehub Play

    Went riding with a buddy this weekend, and he noticed a creaking sound while I peddled.. I never noticed it, but I have very poor hearing... Anyway, we narrowed it down to the cassette/hub... Today I took the cassette off, to clean and re-install it... I noticed there is a good bit of play between the cassette and hub and was wondering if this is normal..

    Here is a video... At about 10 seconds you can start to get the best view of it...

    For the record, I have reinstalled it and torqued it to manufacturer specs.. Took it for a short ride, and I don't hear anything.. Of course, I didn't hear much before until it was pointed out... But, looking for some expert mechanic advice... My shop is over an hour away...

    What kind of cassette and how many cogs?
    I don't know about Easton freehubs but I do know that many MAVIC hubs need a 2 mm thick spacer behind Shimano cassettes. In addition, Shimano 10-speed hubs need a 1 mm spacer at the back when run on most freehubs.
    Your cassette needs to be fit tightly to the freehub. Loose cogs can damage freehub splines.
    Maybe you should check with Easton.

    The cassette is an Ultegra 10S 11/23. It does have a spacer on the freehub... It just seems like the inside width of the cassette is a bit greater than the outside width of the hub assembly.

    Ask those 160 how many are familiar with Easton freehubs, certainly not me.
