campy cassette removal

Do the cogs have to come off individually or can I remove the whole cassette as one? I removed the lock ring and the first cog. Then I removed the axle nut( necessary?) I am trying to replace the cassette from 12/23 to 13/26 The new cassette hasn't arrived yet, I just want to be ready when it does. I have never found a better site than this for help. Thank you

The axle nut? Not sure what you're talking about, but.. just remove the entire cassette. I'm not sure if each cog comes of individually, but from memory, I think it does.

The only thing you need to be removing from the rear wheel to swap the cassette is the lockring, and the old cassette. Don't be removing anything else you don't have to.

edit: unless you're calling the skewer the axle nut... Then yes, that needs to be removed lol.

Depending on the model of cassette, either every cog is an individual cog, or the first several are individual and the last few cogs are connected together in groups of 2.

I don't know which hub you're talking about, but generally only the lockring needs to come off, then all the cogs and spacers just slide off.

REMEMBER THE ORDER OF THE SPACERS. I can't stress that enough because the spacers come in lots of different widths (like 3 or 4 different ones per cassette) so you are going to want to know which ones go between which cogs if you want to put the cassette back on and sitll want indexing to work or the chain to fit on the cogs.

campy cassette change

Thank you,I guess the nut I removed (just accessible after I removed the first cog) was not necessary.I wonder if there is a setting for tightness on it ..there was an allen set screw in the nut.Now.. searated side of nut in or out? this is a mirage 8 speed and I am installing a record 8 speed in it's place any problems? Since I've gone this far should I clean and lube the freewheel.....thanks again

I think the spacers on my Record 10 are all the same thickness.

They may look close by no Record 10 Speed Cassette uses all the same thickness spacers.

See this for details: http://www.campagnolo.com/repository...ckets_1107.pdf

My Campagnolo cassettes - and Miche - slide right off the hub once the lockring has been removed. They may stick a little bit and need to be rocked back & forth to get them disengaged from the splines in the hub - but don't try to force them. Just gentle rocking does the job. Eack cog on the cassette may have a different angle needed install & to remove - but they all require a gentle touch.

Leave the axle-nut where it was. The cassette slides out without removing anything other than the lockring. Rock, baby - ROCK it!
