Perfect price point for me.

One of the advantages of Shimano's "trickle down technology" is when a lesser group is upgraded to a newer feature set. That is the case for this cassette - 10 speed at a new lower cost. Performs as well as 105 group at a lower cost.

Pros: Chrome plated lock ring

Cons: None

Shimano Tiagra 4600 Cassette

I bought the 12/28t cassette to setup with the entire new Tiagra 4600 series 10-speed family. So far it all looks good and runs fine.. nice to have the 10-speed in the 4600 series

Pros: Simply works..

Cons: NONE

Would Buy Again: Yes
Would Recommend: Yes

New gear options for Tiagra

These cassettes are not exactly light, but they are well made and don't require the little spacer before you slide the cassette on to the freehub. The best part is the 12-30 option!

Pros: New 12-30 gearing!

Cons: Heavy

Would Buy Again: Yes
Would Recommend: Yes

The aluminum carrier saves your freehub

This is in regard to the other review which states that the reason for an aluminum carrier is weight. Yes, the more expensive cassettes use an aluminum carrier to reduce weight, but it is also a freehub saver. If you have an alloy freehub body, individual cogs will dig into the metal and make removal of your cassette very unpleasant. If you are a strong pedaler, or a clydesdale, that aluminum carrier will be of great help to you in that it distributes the torque from your pedaling input across a larger surface area.

Great cassette at a good price

I was so happy when Shimano moved the Tiagra group to 10-speed. It gave us a good option for a reasonably priced 10-speed cassette. Having a 30-tooth cog was a bonus.

I've compared this to a 105 (5600) cassette, and as far as I can see the shifting ramps are identical. Practical experience backs this up -- it shifts well. The higher level cassettes have a nicer finish when clean, but how long does a cassette stay clean?

The biggest difference between this and Shimano's more expensive cassettes is weight. The higher end models have an aluminum spider holding the three biggest cogs, which save some weight. This cassette has full-sized steel cogs at every position with plastic spacers between them. I don't know how much difference that makes, but it's some extra weight. Also, while only the three biggest cogs are connected on the 105 cassettes, the Tiagra cassette has the seven largest cogs riveted together. Personally, I find that convenient.

I bought the 12-30 cassette, and it works very well with an Ultegra 6600 short cage rear derailleur when paired with my 46-34 crankset. I was able to drop it in in place of a 105 12-27 cassette and didn't even have to adjust the derailleur. It just worked. If anything shifting was better with the new cassette.
