I have replaced the Shimano Deore 9 speed cassette into another. Both are 9 speed and the teeth count matches (it is 11).
The low gears with the new cassette work great at expected, but the 9th (the fastest) gear provides no any useful traction before it skips. From that I hear I am under impression that the chain simply rotates around the cog with not enough interaction.
It worked with the previous cassette. Have I assembled it wrongly? I tried to adjust the cable tension but this works on other cogs and does not help for the smallest cog.
The chain in new. The previous cassette worked with this chain, and later I replaced the last 2 cogs - the replaced cogs also worked well. Hence I assume it cannot be not enough tension or anything the like. But finally I needed to replace the whole cassette as other cogs are also worn.
