    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.

    what is your current setup? it might entice more experienced riders to chime in.. I know there are a few mechanics that scope this forum.

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