ConsCassette shimmy when freewheel
ProsStrong wheels
At first I did notice a few minor problems when I received the wheelset. The lateral trueness was not as perfect as I like. Tweeked a few of the spokes on the truing stand: maybe an eigth of a turn here and there and I was happy. Also when the bike was on the repair stand and I was lubing the chain I noticed that the rear cassette shimmied about 1mm left to right when the wheel was freewheeling. I did a bit of research and it seems a common(ish) thing.

I checked that the cassette was on tight and no play when wiggled left to right. There was no play in the hub bearings either. Shifting is still very good so I'm happy with the explanation that there's a small discrepancy between the freehub and the cassette alighnment through manufacturing.

After 500 miles on these wheels, they've stayed true (no need to put back on truing stand) and shifting is still crisp and clean. I weigh about 16 stones so feel very happy that the back wheel still runs true. After initial niggles I'm very happy with the new wheels.

SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

This wheel takes an 8, 9 or 10spd cassette as standard but can be converted to allow use with a 7spd cassettes with a simple spacer which is SJSC part 3888. this will be the same case for most modern mountain bike wheels.

Thanks.
