I have ordered a Motobecane Team Fly Ti hardtail which I noticed has a small rear cassette....specifically a Shimano CS-6500 cassette 9 speed 12-27T.
I am ordering a replacement 11-34T Shimano CS-M770 Deore XT Cassette. I could not see the justification in paying the huge price for the XTR cassette. let me know if this cassette will not work for any reasons that I am not aware of.
Will the existing chain work with the new larger rear cassette or do I need to buy a larger chain?
Would a Shimano XTR/7701 9 Speed Chain work better for me or is KMC super narrow X9 speed (on the bike now) basically the same size?
