Sorry to hear this. That's a bummer, especially if it's repeatable.

One other suggestion.....Try either a 105 / 5800 version of that cassette or (gulp) a Dura Ace version? Perhaps one of those would omit whatever manufacturing issue the 2 6800 versions you've tried have??

My opinion is not popular, however, I too have an EVO w/ 6800. (EVO 3) And it's nice, it works, etc. I get the FD is an advanced design w/ easy shifting and the brakes, shorter shifters, etc are all good, but if I'm being honest.......I'm just not that impressed.

6800 isn't perfect. I don't know if you've noticed, but I can detect RD shifting anomolies throughout the range depending on my RD adjustment. There is no "perfect shifting all the way up & down the cogs". It's a compromise if "good enough" but that's not unlike most RD's/cassettes have been. Just my $.02.

Hope you can find your way around the issue.
