I spoke with an executive for E13 at Crankworks (global sales manager?) who adjusted my derailleur for me, super nice guy (but a little condescending, it was obviously my fault, not his cassette). However, the problem has nothing to do with the derailleur adjustment, as I tried to explain to him. I have had other cassettes miss-shift because of the derailleur adjustment but never had them drop to the smallest cog while trying to shift into the biggest cog. The executive refused to blame it on the cassette and refused any kind of warranty.

Google E13 cassette reviews and read the other comments here, I am not the only one with this problem. My drivetrain was worn out so I replaced the entire drivetrain, new cassette, chain and chainring and of course readjusted the derailleur and the limit screws and have had trouble since the first day.

Ask Monty Henry (a long time bike mechanic and shredder in Moab) he was right behind me when it happened about a month ago and he said, "wow, I've never seen that happen before in my life!"

Ask my students, it has screwed up in every camp I have taught this summer.

I have the same problem. Even had an E13 tech adjust my derailleur at Crankworx (as he said that was the problem) and it still shifts super clunky and under the slightest load will drop to the 9 tooth when trying to shift into an easier gear. I've been mountain biking since 1989, was sponsored by E13 in the early 2000's and have used various Sram, shimano, Sun and Praxis cassettes and never had a cassette drop the chain the wrong way by 6-8 gears under load. Will never by an E13 product again (which is too bad as I loved their products in the past).

mine isn't as bad as his, but it works worst than a shimano or sram cassette, and sometimes skips under load, and it only has 3 months.

Having tried a brand new chain (11-speed, duh) with it multiple times, two different derailleurs, a perfectly fine hanger AND a brand new one for good measure, I think that rules out all of the variables you mentioned. The other reports I heard from my local shop were not as negative...more

'Democrats, or Republicans' was not mentioned. I hope you do see the relevance of the cost of cycling goods to a cycling site though. News that will most likely affect everyone should just be seen as that, news, not bias. Plus, this article had good arguments...more

El Gwinerino makes better use of the royal "we" than The Dude Himself. Must be a SoCal thing.

That was a great trip down memory lane as well as a lot of cool/funny things I never knew about Scott. He's come along way since hanging in a van with Alex Morgan (the mad scientist of mtb). Looking forward to the second half.

For me it creates arm pump. Just felt the need to point out there’s no right or wrong way ;-)

hit his podcast up for the raw, uncensored goods. things like a bike check get around to a lot more people and less core audience and i personally feel there's no problem w/ toning it back on something like this.

Shawn Freaking Neer! He's been flying under the radar for way too long. Glad to see his switch to Enduro paying off.

Joey Schusler is a great human, kind, modest and he follows his passions like a heat-seeking missile. So impressed by the lifestyle he has created and the movies he makes.
