Broken Cassette??

Other than spokes this is the only thing I've broke in almost three years on my bike but man what a bummer. Luckally I don't think it's ratchet system or the axle cause it still pedals and has forward motion it's just really rough. The rings are moving freely side to side on the hub. Now I'll show off my newness by asking is this something they can fix or am I looking at a new cassette?

I'd get a new cassette and chain, they are relatively cheap.

Cassette lockring may have come loose. The smallest 2 cogs would move independantly free and the rest (if the pins are intact) would wiggle as a group.

If the retaining pins broke then all the cogs and spacers could move about.

If the lockring was over-torqued, maybe a spacer got broken. That would leave a couple mm of play for all the other cogs and spacers.

Sometimes they cassette lockrign comes loose like Clif says. But my last cassette was thrashed when I went to check it. The rivets that hold the cogs together were FUBAR. Actually you should replace the cassette anyways, part of maintenance. Some replace it every few thousand miles after everyother chain or two. Lie tires, they wear out!

It's likely time it has around 10000k on it.
