Just being curius, WHAT cassette has 10th smallest ring? I have newer heard such.

And you can easilly take little off from Tune 11 size etc. lock ring in lathe.

Or do it hard way, just file it.

IIRC, the TNT 10-tooth replaced the cassette lockring, making a 7-speed into a 8-speed, 8-speed into 9-speed, etc. I don't think a 10-tooth cog could be made to fit on a standard Shimano cassette body- not enough material would be left on the cog.

A truly demented alternative would be to install a Shimano Capreo rear hub, which has a 9 (yep, nine!) tooth small cog. It's designed for small-wheel travel bikes, but if you like 'em small...
