Hey all,
I have a Shimano HG50-9 on the back of my Pugs. For the second time, the spacers have cracked the the LBS is suggesting I replace it. This has happened to two of these cassettes. I probalby put 3k on this bike a year. I ride a lot of road with it, some single track, and as much snow as possible, but I don't think I do anything close to abusing the bike.
1. Is this just a lower end cassette that I should expect this out of?
2. Any recommendations on more durable cassette?



It is a low end cluster however i'm not sure what to get out of it durability wise. My recommendation is a sram pg990 11/34 as a replacement if you choose to do so.
