    Strengths:    Were it not for being in the UK, price and availability given that Ultegra 8-spd cassettes are impossible to find although D-A continues to be available in some configurations. Also the product is functional.

    Weaknesses:    Shifting and running is not as smooth as a D-A cassette. Also, the cogs are riveted together so replacement, absent drilling out the rivets, is a no go.

    Bottom Line:   
    Functional equipment at a decent price. While not as smooth shifting, the ramps do work and functionally, there's nothing to complain about. Cassette life has been between 3,000-6,000 miles. I use them all the time now, saving my inventory of D-A cassettes for good weather as its been known to rain a bit in the UK.
