Most cassettes are weighed for the smallest cogset they make - maybe that weight was a pre production 11-15 10 speed cassette!


The one I bought was the smallest size on there website. or would the biggest one be lighter?

talking about sizes in cassetes, a dopy(light headed) teammate of mine from last year had national mountain championships(for road) coming up and wanted to borrow some light wheels. I said to him, if you use the 11-21 it is a lot lighter then the 12-27 and will be easier on the climbs!.....................................he bought it for about a min........... took him a while to work it out! :lol:

I guess it depends on what you call a lie. If I advertise that my product weight Ygrams and it actually weighs 1.2 x Y grams but I don't put in the advertising that the weight could vary by that degree then there could be a case for false advertising.
