Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

11 speed cassette with a 16T

Looking for a Shimano or Sram 11-32T cassette that contains the 13-14-15-16T in the grouping. Any suggestions? Some sites don't list the full breakdown & others show it only available with a 11-28T

What you are looking for does not exist:

DM-RACS001-02-ENG.pdf (shimano.com)

Cassettes | SRAM

Search for "shimano cassette dealer manual" to find the individual cogs in a Shimano cassette.

Only the SRAM version of the 11-28 cassette has a 16T cog, but it does not also have the 32T cog which you seek.

thanks. I recall a thread with a link to a site that offers a build to spec cassette, but couldn't find it using the search menu.

I think some others have mentioned an Italian company named Miche that does this.

I'm pretty sure the new Shimano 12sp will have a 16T cog.

Edco does not make a 11-32 cassette with only single tooth gaps between the 13T cog and the 16T cog as Troul wants; I thought he was asking about a custom cassette for which he can specify the individual cogs.

As long as I can get the 15, 16, & maybe even 17 together on a 11-32T 11spd assembly, it'd be sufficient.

you could get a 14-28, get rid of the 12 in your existing cassette and add the 16.

14 - 28 Junior Cassette is single tooth jumps to the 21. 14-15-16-17-18-19-20-21-23-25-28

According to Mike Shermans gear chart, Shimano has an 11 spd. 11-32 with a 16. Says 11-12-13-14-15-16-17

https://mike-sherman.github.io/shift/

Don't know if it exists.

still would be missing the 32T though. I'd even opt to have a 34T if it netted the lesser tooth count cogs.

Yea, I know, what I was thinking is get both, pull the 12 and add the 16.

that cost though... it's approaching the "custom" route.

Wouldn't the 8 speed version be too thick to work in an 11 speed drive train?

I have tried to create a custom / Frankenstein 11 speed 12-28 cassette from two donor (12-25 & 11-28) Ultegra cassettes, but could not get the downshift across the transition (between the two donor cassettes) to work properly. YMMV, good luck.

I'm not 100% on the thickness, but I'll take out the vernier to see about that difference. what was the T setup across the cassette?

My Frankenstein Ultegra cassette was intended to replicate a Shimano DA 12-28 cassette: 12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21-23-25-28. Detailed here:

i'd thought that sweep would be easy for the system... Did you have the back spacing, shim, in between spacers, & chainline good? New cable & housing?

I guess a 12-32 option is out? Would require a freehub swap to campy, but I've been pretty happy with the centaur 12-32, a relative bargain these days at under $70

a 30T might be feasible, but the 32 really comes in handy when spiking up certain terrains around the area.
