So, the answer is maybe. Not all freehubs are the same. Some 10spd freehubs do and some don't. If your not having a binding problem with your freehub and when the rear derailleur is lined up with the lowest (inside) cog and it's not hitting your spokes then it's good. if either of these things happen install the spacer.

Fitting instructions needed for Shimano Rd-Ty18-6-Gsd Bike Rear Derailleur with Bracket

The semi-circular spacer is what holds the derailleur in the dropout. Take the part that looks like a "C" and line it up on the drop out, the spacer goes on the other side of the dropout. There should be a screw that fastens to the spacer and clamps the derailleur to the drop out.

Hello could you please advise on how to get the back wheel sprocket off. thanks tony

Depends on whether it is a freewheel or free hub.

For a freehub, you need a chain spanner -- basically a long lever with chain on it to hold the large sprocket while you use a second one to unscrew the smallest cog. Once that is off, all the other cogs slide off.

For a freewheel (usually only on older bikes), if you look inside the smallest cog, you'll see some sort of a recess. On Suntour it would be 2 recesses to accept a 2-pinned removal tool. For Shimano, it is a splined remover that fits around the axle. Insert the freewheel removal tool, use the Quick release to hold it in place, and a large wrench to unscrew the freewheel. In this case the entire freewheel comes off in one piece. Once off, you can use the method for the freehub to remove the outer cog and each successive inner cog. Often it is easier to put the removal tool in a vice and turn the wheel rather than use a wrench.

Can't fit the cleats to MO76 shoes. Instruction

assuming your using Shimano pedal cleats?

You should have on the bottom of the shoe 4 threaded holes showing.
(if not then you will need to check the shoe box as sometimes they need to be fitted)

The cleat should be placed directly on top of this... with the point facing towards the front of the shoe.
You then need to place the OO plate on top of the cleat and place the crews in making sure the cleat is positioned straight.

Once tightened then place the cleat on the pedal and make sure its position is correct and your shoe is sitting straight then re-tighten.

hope this helps.

Need to replace the cassette body on my Ksyrium SL wheel. Is there a tech sheet on this procedure?

You need two tools: a cassette wrench or socket (it's a splined socket that fits into the cassette through the axle)and a chain whip wrench. You use the chain whip by wrapping it around one of the cogs of the cassette to immobilize it and then loosen the lock nut of the cassette with the cassette wrench. It is just like a screw or bolt. The Cassette needs to be lined up with the splines on the freehub. Find the thin spline and use it as your "key" because it is the only one that width. Then drop the new cassette on to the freehub and re-torque the cassette's lock ring. If the cassette is disassembled rather than one piece, from the largest cog first on the bottom, alternate between cogs and spacers until you are out of spacers. The smallest cogs have these cast in. As you take the old one off, the installation technique is the same in reverse.

In my experience with Shimano cassettes on Mavic wheels, the answer is "yes" but i had a mountain wheel and cassette. The only way to know is to put it on and see if there is slop in the fitment. If there is, then you have your answer. i also had this problem with Mavic: i had to adjust the high and low settings on my rear derailleur because of the awkward spacing of the Mavic freehub. Just something you should be aware of in case you have difficulty with shifting after the install. By the way - although they are inferior cassettes, SRAM cassettes seem to fit Mavic freehubs better.
