Any tricks to installing a new cassette on new wheels
to be installed on my old bike? I've read every thread regarding removing/replacing cassettes and removing/installing new wheels I could find, but I still have some apprehension because it will be a first for me.
I know I have Ultegra 9 speed on my 1998 Kona Kapu, so I ordered a new 12-23 9 speed Ultegra cassette, a lockring tool and a chain whip. This should be easy, right? Won't even need the chain whip to install the new cassette on the Ritchey wheels I bought (Ritchey Pro Z - I'm a noob and don't want to spend a whole lot for decent performance and quality, if you're asking why I didn't go with Kysiriums or something along those lines), correct?
Just slide the cassette on the free hub, thread the lockring on and tighten, right? Then pop the new wheel on? That simple? HELP?
