I used to always purchase the XTR CS-M950 8-speed cassette, but those don't seem to be available anymore.

What is the best 8-speed cassette still available? All I seem to be able to find is the SRAM PG-850.

Looking for something with a 32 tooth top cog, lightweight, strong.

thanks

I'll Second That

M900, best 8spd cogset that Shimano made.
Not too hard to find.

I'm quite fond of the M900 cassettes. They're still around, you just have to dig a little.
yep, the 900 or 950 are the only shimano ones w/ 32. harder to find than the xt 11-30, these days.
my sample size of sram's 8spd is only 2, but I didn't like the shifting compared to lx-xtr.

Suntour?

Anyone have time on a current Suntour 8 speed cassette? They have a 32-11 that is cheap...

M900 mmmmm. Damn why do they keep wearing out?? Eventually I will try a sram, but not yet.

Can get the "low end" CS HG-50 cassettes in 11-32 8 speed. They last longer than the M900 units also. They do weigh a tad more, but they're way cheaper too. Shifting is excellent.
