Item specifics

Condition: New other (see details)  
New-Old-Stock Shimano 8/9-Speed to 7-Speed Cassette Conversion Spacer (4.5 mm)
Thank you for your interest in this item and please visit our store for other offerings. We have very reasonable shipping terms and combine orders to save money (for customers) on shipping costs. We also maintain customer friendly return/refund/exchange policies.

Product Description:

This offering is for a single 4.5 mm spacer that is commonly used to allow for a newer 8/9/10 speed Shimano HyperGlide (HG) freehub to accomodate a 7-speed HyperGlide cassette. It's an easy conversion in the sense that one of these spacers slides onto a hub body first...followed by a 7-speed cassette...and the added space taken up by the 4.5 mm spacer allows for the HyperGlide lockring to still cinch down on the 7-speed cassette. Please also note these spacers actually have a few notches to help the spacer seat better on a splined hub body.

As for condition, all of these spacers are new and unused.

Listing Update...We should also note that some 7-speed HyperGlide cassettes will have a handful of the splined sprockets/spacers connected by rivets. This will not cause a problem when mounting one of these cassettes on a 7-speed HyperGlide freehub, but can present a minor problem when coverting an 8/9/10 speed HyperGlide freehub to a 7-speed compatible freehub with one of these spacers.

The problem arises from the rivet heads (measuring about 3 mm) that protrude out the back of the cassette. These rivet heads end up resting against one of these conversion spacers, which results in about 7.5 mm of space behind the cassette. As a result, the threaded lockring will usually not thread on the end of the freehub, because there is too much space accounted for by the spacer and the rivet heads.

The fix is a fairly simple one...just tap out the rivets and mount each sprocket and spacer separately (and note that because this is a HyperGlide freehub...the sprockets will only mount one mounting each sprocket individually will still result in functional HyperGlide index shifting that is no different from a cassette with rivets still in place).

Note to international customers regarding shipping...
We apologize to those that feel some of our international shipping charges are too high. We only charge actual shipping rates, but once an order exceeds a certain amount, we hesitate to use the least expensive US Postal Services First Class International service. We feel this way, because this service is not trackable or more risk of loss. We prefer the US Postal Services Priority Mail International service for more expensive orders, because this service is trackable at and less risk of loss. Unfortunately, this service is more expensive, especially for smaller/lighter packages, relative to the First Class International service. We are sorry about these higher shipping costs, but hopefully our notes help to explain why this is the case.

Note to international customers regarding customs...
We also apologize to those that feel their country import taxes, duties and brokerage fees are excessive. As a small US business, we are required by customs' laws to declare each order as a retail sale. Additionally, the declared order value must be equal to total store purchases and/or winning auction bids (less any shipping costs, as these are not considered in the declared value). As a result, each customer will be responsible for paying his/her own country taxes, duties and brokerage fees, which will be collected upon delivery. Again, we aplogize for these additional costs, but we cannot afford the penalties and fines that come with breaking customs' we have to strictly abide by them.
