SRAM PG-1050 Powerglide II 12-36: Will it work for mtn biking?

I bought a VERY LIGHTLY used set of Stan's ZTR Crest wheels, and decided that I might as well mount a new cassette on it.

As the title says, it is a SRAM PG-1050 cassette, 12-36, which is what is currently on my bike. I ASSUMED that the cassette I was buying off ebay would obviously be for mtn biking, as the number and size of the cassette was matching what is currently on my bike.

Now that I sober up, and do a little looking, it appears that the cassette I bought is aimed at road biking.

Will it make my mtn bike automagically explode?

Only other tad of information that might be of use is that this will be on a bike running a 1x10 drivetrain, with a SRAM X-9 shifter.

Naw . . . it will just give you an unexplained liking for Lycra and make you utter silly words like 'fred' and 'kit.'



But seriously, there are road and mountain versions of the 1050. It appears that they mostly differ by cog-spread offered and the fact that the mtn version uses a steel lockring instead of alloy. Mtn may have alloy spacers instead of plastic?

Clusters for road: 11-23; 11-26; 11-32; 12-25; 12-26; 12-27; 12-28; 12-32.
Mountain clusters: 11-23; 11-26; 11-28; 11-32; 12-36.

Your 12-36 is 'officially' a mountain. Whew. Keep the baggies on.

Even if it was a "road specific" cassette, you could still use if for MTB.
