How do I know what size my bike cassette is?
Sprockets vary in size according to the number of teeth they have. A cassette may therefore be sized as 11-32t. The first number refers to the number of teeth on the smallest sprocket (the highest gear, for fast pedalling at speed) and the second number to the biggest sprocket (the lowest gear, for climbing hills).
Are all bike cassettes the same size?
