ProsGood Value for money for extra gear Ratios
Was using 52-39 and 11-25 with a Short cage 105 on my old Specialized Allez Sport and finding the hills a bit more difficult lately (Getting older).Decided to give the 11-34 a try combined with the Sunrace Rear Extender. Bought a new 9spd chain and swapped everything over without any problems, just had to extend the length of my chain by a couple of links compared to the 11-25 set up and adjust the B limit screw. No problems with shifting using the short cage which I was a bit concerned about.

Proscrisp gear changes
Oh, the sweet sound of nice crisp gear changes, how I missed you.
Not any more ?? it's surprising how you don't realise how your gear changes have degraded over time, with a new cassette the change is night and day.

Can I use the Alivio HG400 9 speed cassette on a Tiagra HG400 hub
14 Jun 2023
Hello & thank you for your enquiry.
Shimano 8- 9- and 10-speed cassettes/hubs are fully interchangeable for wheels with steel Freehub bodies. The only parts that are different in any important way between the 8- 9- and 10-speed systems are the shift control levers.
Hope this assists.
Kind regards, PC 14/6/23.
Can you let me know the weight of the Alivio CS-hg 400/9 12 -36 cassette. Thanks

Can I swop from Sora 12/27 to this?
24 Mar 2022
Hi I have a specialized secteur with a 12/27 sora cassette. Need a bit of help up the hills. Can I swop to a CS-HG400 11/32? Do I need to change anyything else?
You may need to use a derailleur extender, SJS part 54247 would suit this.

I got Haibike sDuro Hardseven 1.0 Ebike with with Shimano 9spd it 11-36 I want lower 1st gear will 11-42 or 11-40 fit Ebike it got 114 Link Chain what ones make it easier go up steep hills
11-40/42 would make climbing easier. You will need to confirm your derailleur will cope with the extra sized cassette, your local bike shop may be helpful with this.

Can I replace Shimano HG400, 9 speed, 11-34 cassette with a same model 11-25 cassette?

Can I replace Shimano HG400, 9 speed, 11-34 cassette with a same model 11-25 cassette?

My chain is relatively new and has no stretch but Will i have to remove chain links or just readjust my rear sora deraileur? thanks
We would recommend readjusting your rear derailleur for optimum shifting performance. We cannot say if you will have to remove links, as you will need to perform a chain-link calculation for your new drivetrain.

Rear Hub Compatibility
27 Nov 2020
Hello, interested in this cassette in 11-34 to run with my 46/30 double. Can you please tell me if it will work with the following hub that I ordered from you recently - Shimano Deore FH-T610 Rear Hub 135mm - Black.

Will this run with a normal chain as well or require a specific type/width?

Kind regards Ben
Hi, yes this cassette will work fine with the FH-T610 rear hub. The recommended chain for 9-speed use will depend if you wish to use it as a 1x9/ 2x9/ 3x9 system.

Getting a lower gear ratio for Simano sora 11-32
25 Nov 2020
I have a 50/34 chainring and 11-32 cassette. 9 speed. Can i fit an 11-34 or 12-36 cassette without having to change the chain?
Shimano says that any increase in maximum sprocket size would require a new chain cut to the correct length to suit the new gearing.

Currently have 11-27 sora cassette. If i change to hg400 11-34, how much longer (if at all) will my chain need to be?

I chewed through one of these cassettes in under 1200 miles what do you recommend would be a good replacement in the 11/36, 12/36 or 11/34 range that’s more durable than this in your stock range thanks?

Can I use this (11-32) with Sora R3000 middle size rear derailleur?
18 Feb 2020
Hi there,

yes, you will be able to use this however it may work better with the medium cage derailleur set up.

Can I use this with a 9 speed XT groupset?
01 Sep 2019
This is around half the price of the XT M770 cassette, and as I don't need the high performance anymore I wondered whether this would be suitable.
Yes, you could use pretty much any 9 speed cassette.

What rear changer should I order to handle this configuration ?

Will a Shimano Claris med. cage derailleur work with a 11-32 cassette?
17 Dec 2018
I am looking to change my current cassette to an 11-32. My rear derailier is a Shimano Claris medium cage derailleur and was wondering if I will be able to use it for the new cassette? (I have an Ultegra triple on the front)
We would have thought an 11-32 will be fine.

Thanks - 18/12/18
Hi, I've a Shimano HG80/9 cassette, what are the cheaper alternatives from Shimano?

Hi there,

Any 9 speed Shimano hyperglide cassette should work absolutely fine. The cheapest one we have at the moment is part #36275

Can I change an 8 speed cassette to a 9 speed
04 Jun 2018
I want to change my 8 speed 11-32 shimano cassette to a 9 speed 12-36. one. I have an XT cage and a single 42 chain ring. Is this OK, what chain and changer do I need
Hi there,

You will be able to use pretty much any 9 speed chain found here -
The shifter just needs to be 9 speed Shimano, generally these are sold in pairs, such as -

Will the 11-32 9 speed work without the 11 sprocket?
21 Apr 2018
I have 9 speed levers but only room for 8 sprockets. 12-32 would be good enough gears for me.
Hi there,

No, you must use all of the sprockets.

I need an hg400 9 speed cassette but will a cs hg400 doo the same
19 Apr 2018
Hi there,

Yes the HG-400 is the best option as a replacement.

Separating sprockets on 12-36
15 Apr 2018
I have read your answer about the 7 biggest sprockets being pinned together, but could I remove the largest sprocket by grinding/drilling the pins?
I only have room for 8 sprockets on the old 7 speed cassette body I'm using and I have 9 speed shifters.
Hi there,

You could remove the biggest sprocket, but we would not recommend it.

Could i use with an early 2000s shimano 9 spd set up
03 Nov 2017
I have a 2003 specialized allez which came with a 9 spd shimano setup. Do you know if this cassette will work with it?

The fitting and cog spacing will be the same, you will just need to make sure your rear derailleur can cope with the size of cassette you choose, this won't be an issue if you are sticking to the same ratio though.

Replacement Cassette.
01 Apr 2016
Which would be better cassette for my road bike. the Shimano CS HG 300 or the 400 ?
I replaced a Shimano cs HG 50 1132t some while ago on my Dawes super Galaxy tourer with a bigger cassette from yourselves and I'm going to replace now I'm buying some new wheels.

There is very little difference between the HG300 and the HG400. The finish is the only thing that separates them and this would only be aesthetically so you would not notice any difference in performance between the two.
