    Info on old Shimano Cassette

    I came across this unique Shimano cassette where the smallest cog is also the lockring and the threads are on the outside of the freehub.
    What are these called? I guess it was one of those short-lived Shimano inventions?

    It's Shimano Uniglide, which preceded Hyperglide, the current standard.

    You can prolly remove the cassette body from the hub and replace it with a HG one in order to fit far superior shifting HG cogs.
