    Friend of mine gave me a XX1 cassette with a pretty badly worn 42T. On steep sections the chain would skip over the teeth when pedaling. I couldn't really bring myself to spend 90 bucks on a Wolf Tooth or OneUp cog. I've been watching this Aerozone one at 50 for a few weeks now. Someone put up a 10 dollar off code for eBay so I bought it. Ordered on Friday from somewhere in New Jersey, arrived on Wednesday.

    The removal and install was quite easy. I used a wide blade flat head screwdriver. Slowly and gently pried it off. Install was just as easy. Used a channel lock and gently pressed the 44T onto the tabs. Went around a few times till the cog was seated all the way on the tabs. Took about 10 mins including cleaning the inside of the cassette a bit.

    Shifting seems good...maybe a bit slower than the stock...but that is serious nitpicking.

    All in all pretty good for 40 bucks shipped to me.

    This only works with the XX1/X01 since the 42T is removable on these two cassettes.

    Yup, 36 to 44. Only two more teeth compared to stock. It not something I can really notice pedaling around.

    You should see Wolf Tooth's 46T. You're going from the 36 to 46.
