Are you sure you mean cassette or freewheel?

freewheel
http://www.niagaracycle.com/product_...ucts_id=702640

cassette
http://www.niagaracycle.com/product_...ucts_id=432899

These are only approximate because I beleive what you are looking for may not be available.

This may be the widest range:

I'd been looking for a 6 speed freewheel that had fewer than 13 Teeth on the smallest cog and couldn't find one in 6 speeds (or 7). Don't think you're going to have much luck in new (maybe vintage). Looks like from your link that Shimano may have made one at one time, but I think you and I are SOL. If you do find a source, post back here. Cassettes seem easy to find, freewheels, not so much.

Well,SURPRIZE! SURPRIZE! Looky what I found...... It seems that the hubs on E-Bikes take the same freewheels as bicycles,WHO'D A THUNK THAT!

You can get 7 speed 11-32 FREEWHEELS(other speeds also),NEW,by a company called DNP.They make parts for E-BIKES.

It isn't Shimano but I think this may be your only choice for new these days.

I don't know about the "stash," but I have a spare 26" MTB wheel with a shiny 11/34 freewheel on it. Not simply trusting my memory (bad idea) but went out into the shop and looked. If you don't do any good PM me and we will check cost to mail it to you.

Many people tell you that these don't exist, but they are on and off E-bay. Right now, they seem to be off. Of course, it is simply NOT true that they don't exist: http://store.comcycle-usa.com/Produc...spx?id=5904743 Hmm..went to "checkout" function and they only listed 11-30.

Anyway, I can fix you up for a token price + postage.

Old SunTour New Winner Pro freewheels went down to 12 teeth for 6-speed and 7-speed freewheels, and I think there was a special setup to go to 11 teeth on the 6-speed. These were rare in the early '80's, so finding them now may be a lost cause. Ask Yellow Jersey: http://www.yellowjersey.org/stfw.html

Note that these are not compatible with any index shifting system.

Huh, I've screwed up my indexing and haven't bothered to fix it so I've been running friction lately. I wonder if I could just leave it friction and throw a 7 speed freewheel on there without too much trouble. Probably not worth it (would have to get freewheel removal tool and possibly a new chain) but it's an old mountain bike that I've converted to a dropbar commuter so it's spaced at 130 mm so it should fit if I decided to go that route. Indexing is nice, but I've occasionally felt the need for more gear inches than my 46x14 can provide currently.

Even the cheapest freewheels work. What exactly is the problem ?? Might be something else causing it.

No 2 teeth are cut the same..this thing is super low quality
In 6th the chain can't grab the cog so it jut slips at certain spots.

Teeth are often cut differently to aid in shifting. It could be the chain, or adjustment, or a bent derailleur or hanger.

According to Sheldon Brown, Shimano stopped making these several years ago. I suppose it's possible that a shop still has some of these in their back inventory, but you'd be lucky to find them.

Did you ever figure out what was wrong with yours? Return it for a replacement? Trying to figure out if the one you got was just a lemon or if in general they have poor standards for making them. Sheldon made it sound like it was a complicated bit of re-engineering to design them so maybe these other folks weren't able to pull it off. I'd love to buy one if I could trust I wouldn't get stuck with the lemon you did.

I've bought one of these. Actually the 11-34T one, from Patrick in the USA (I am in Brazil). He very kindly sent me a shiny piece. It is not that cheap, but in the end it becomes cheaper than changing hub, shifter, deraileur, chain... And I love how silent this one clicks! Working great for 1 year now.

DNP site: http://www.dnp.com.tw/pro2_ch.asp?tm...e&page=2&ID=10 (notice the 11-34T is only shown in the taiwanese version) the model is LY-1107MFN. Unfortunately, from dnp you can only buy packs of 25, and only place selling them is at San Diego Electric Bike at http://sdelectricbike.com/Accessories.html.

Have fun! I am planning on buying another one for my slick wheels.
