Cassette Replacement

What determines when you replace your cassette? Miles, performance, cassette wear tool etc.

Did you mean to put this in the Hybrid forum? You'd probably get better responses in Bicycle Mechanics.

Each different type of bicycle has different wear patterns based on the type of riding. I was only interested in the hybrid bike wear pattern of replacement.

Performance, when the chain starts skipping;
I know it's worn out and I change it along with
the cassette.
