LOL, of course I can't hold that kinda power for long:) I most definitely wish I could. Reason why I mentioned that was to say I tested out various power/speed output to test out the cassette. Back when I did the tests though, I was less worried about the creaks, but more so about the catastrophic carrier destruction. Some pics on previous pages of this thread shows cogs just disappearing mid-ride, hence my worries as a dude on the heavier end of the spectrum.
And yes, Shimano HQ, Shimano USA, Shimano Europe, and even Shimano Korea all know about this. Otherwise, the two-rivet running change wouldn't have happened.
I guess you could be like me; put up with the creak, and warranty claim when cassettes implode.
Or continue to warranty the cassettes as creaks develop. Your right as a consumer, since no cassette should creak.
Or switch to Ultegra 6800/8000 cassettes, and enjoy the quietness with a bit of weight gain.
Or Sram Red cassette, and enjoy the quietness with a bit of weight LOSS, but some people suffer shifting issues when paired with Shimano.
These, I think, are pretty much sums up the entirety of this thread, as long as Shimano continues roll with this badly engineered product.
Yep. Haven't read anything in this MASSIVE thread bar the last page here; but I'll add this:Re: Is it an issue with the riveted carbon spider?
I'd be incredibly surprised if it wasn't.
I'm 70kg. New DA cassette about 4 years ago. New bike. Kept hearing this clicking noise under load (not dropping any massive watt bombs). Thought it was BB for ages etc. Turns out it was the DA cassette.
After quite a few trips to mechanic - (he must have been trying everything) I didn't get a satisfactory answer but it was kind of dulled. In any case after about 4,000km - the DA 9000 cassette shattered / cracked under load.
Not cool. Sent to wiggle back for warranty; they obliged - and it sat there in new box until I sold it recently.
Now I have a new bike; new build (plan to sell it in a few months). So I thought; what the hell... maybe they fixed the issue w/ the cassettes? And it'd make it easier selling it as full DA 9100... and yet after about 120km in now...
Starting to hear the noise... SMH.
In between that new DA above; I had been using an Ultegra - no problems, work horse.
It's all about the adventure
