Not sure if I'm using the right terminology here. Last night I changed the chain on my cheap road bike (2008 Specialized Allez Triple), and then took it for a quick test drive but the chain was skipping under any load at all. Figured the cassette is well done as well.
The problem is it's very hard to find a 12-26T where I am for some reason, but there are stores with 11-26T in stock. Would this cause big issues? Anything I should check for before I buy and install?
Also, I am sure I've seen people do this, but right now everything is Shimano, but the only cassette's I can get are SRAM, shouldn't be an issue correct?
