Replacement 7 speed cassette for Breezer Zig 7 (Dahon)
 
Hi Guys,

I need to replace the 11-30 7 speed cassette/chain for my Breezer Zig 7. This bike is a re-badged Dahon, and apparently the 11-30 cassette is a special set-up for Dahon bikes, not really listed for replacement cassettes. I can easily find a 12-32 or 11-28 and was wondering if others have substituted these gearing options with good results?

Thanks,
Harry

Well, my Dahon came with an 11-28 cassette, and I think the spread is just fine. I just bought a new-in-box replacement on Ebay for installation next month with the exact same spread.

use the 12 32 if you like to go up hills easier and have no trouble spinning out at high speed
use the 11 28 if you like going faster and dont have trouble getting up the hills

Thanks guys, ordered the 11-28, should have it next week. Also bought a new SRAM 8-speed chain (ok for 6-7-8 speed cassette). I bought the bike only recently and found the previous owner had damaged the cassette by riding with a twig pressed down between a couple of sprockets so the chain wasn't seating properly. The driveline was very dirty and when I cleaned the cassette, the twig popped out...
