    Busted cassette spacer

    I took my '07 Veloce cassette apart to clean it tonight and found one of the little plastic ring spacers was broken in one spot. I Superglued it back together and the bond seemed fairly strong, then put the stack back on. But, am I asking for trouble here? Should I replace it?

    Thanks.

    All that spacer does is

    a) keep the spacing
    b) allow the lockring to tighten the cassette against the freehub, without play

    If it acheives these two things, you're fine.

    this is one of those occasions where IMHO it pays to be friends witht he bike shop. sometime when your in there on other business just casually bring up "hey you know those campi cassette spacers...." someone likely has one laying around. then you can replace when you break it down to clean it again.

    btw nice avitar
