I can't believe this. I just got a 9sp 11-34 Recon cassette in the mail and the thing is a total disaster. Right off the bat the thing fit loosely on all my 8/9 speed hubs. Part of the reason was the lock fastener did not screw in all the way to the freehub body. But even when I swapped a standard fastener the 8 lower gears were still loose. So I had to shim the thing. I figured everything else would work fine but no it didn't. For some reason this cassette can't match up at all gears. Either it's too high at the bottom or too low at the top. Could the spacing on the sprockets be wrong? All of my other cassettes work and the shifting is standard X-9 components. This is unbelievable. it looks like another Ebay disaster. I bought them from some guy in Taiwan or China. Is this a known problem? Any advice is appreciated.

And one more thing: Even when it shifts ok the sound is still horrible. This cassettes sucks.
