10 speed cassette cog removal


Maybe a stupid question, a friend gave me a 10 speed cassette, but I need to convert it to 9 cogs. Can this happen at all?

Sure. Just find someone with a 9-speed cassette and ask, "Wanna trade?"

If all the cogs are loose (not on multi-cog carriers), you could replace all of the 10s spacers with 9s spacers and drop one cog out. It wouldn't be exactly 9s spacing though because the 10s cogs are thinner than 9s. And the smallest cog(s) have built-in spacers which you can't change so spacing for those would still be 10s. So I don't recommend this.
