LOL that sounds exactly like a creak I was having, it's regular, but not every pedal revolution. It would creak for 3 or 4 revs, then go away, then come back, and on and on. Sounded like it was...

I just worded my question poorly. I want and like the 16T, but it's the first one Shimano takes out for most cassette combinations (other than the 12-28, and maybe a few others), hence the reason why...

OK, this is the kind of thing I was asking about. I didn't think of this but I get it. Thankfully it would be a shift at the end of the cassette and not used often, but at least now I know that's a...

I hear you, that's why I like the 16 in the middle. It's one more cog in there with a single tooth jump, which is much more of a smooth transition. I'm way more often in that zone of the cassette...

Swapping out the small cog 11sp cassette

Forgive me if this is dumb question, but I had this thought about my 11sp Shimano cassette. I'm running a 12-28 cassette, and I'm happy with the 16T in lieu of the 11T in an 11-28 cassette, as I use...
