Which Cassette?

What is the diffrence? Which one is better? I need a new one for my road bike. It needs to be 13-24 or 13-26. What is the diffrence between these two?

And other than those what would be a good 13-26 one?
Thanks!

Maybe pop a Ritalin if 8 minutes isn't soon enough for you?

The more expensive NOS cassette is Uniglide -- the older standard where the smallest sprocket threaded onto the hub to hold the cassette on: https://sheldonbrown.com/k7.html#uniglide

If you have a Hyperglide hub (hopefully), that second, cheaper one is what you want. If you shop around, you may find one for even cheaper.

Forgetting any name or spec, there's a material difference between the two.

One uses a threaded 1st sprocket to hold the rest on, and the other is a modern design where all the sprockets slide on and are retained by a lockring which engages internal threads on the cassette.

As such they fit different freehub bodies, so only one (or neither) could fit your hub.

Unless you have the middle one.
