I am looking for a low cost 22 speed cassette to be used with Force 22 shifter / RD / SRAM chain (wear and tear item?)

It can be either 11-28 or 12-28 doesn't really matter.

I wonder if Rival 22 or 105 would be a good choice? Or just pick the cheaper one either one would work?

I've run Force22, Ultegra 6800, 105 and Red22 cassettes on my bikes and never noticed a difference except for the weight.

I think there might be a difference in shifting quality between chains (tried Red, DA and KMC) but I couldn't detect one for the cassettes.

Personally I went with the Rival 11-28. Coming from an 11-23 I like having the 16. For my area a 21 was plenty or 23 not enough, so split the difference with a 22 and I get two bail out gears with 25, 28.

Rival 1130: 11-12-13-14-15-16-17-19-22-25-28
105: 11-12-13-14-15-17-19-21-23-25-28

This is with Force 22 shifters and der. I've also run Force and Ultegra cassettes with no issue.

I'd just pick the cheaper option. That said, my LBS swears that performance improves when the chain and cassette are matched, i.e. Shimano/Shimano or Sram/Sram. I haven't noticed much of a difference.

I ran a red cassette on my dura 9070 (it's lighter) and ended up back on the shim one. No difference in shifting performance, etc, but I find the shimano one's quieter. I'm putting an ultegra cassette on my rival 22 winter bike in a couple of weeks time, mainly because I picked a load up in the sale for a good price. I'm not expecting to see any difference with them other than the slightly different ratios. I have found shimano chains to run quieter, I've slowly been moving my bikes from KMC back to Shim.
