Answer: 
Yes; 8 and 9 speed chains are effectively the same so can be interchanged as you wish.

Answer: 
Yes ....you can use a 9spd chain with an 8spd cassette, the difference between 8 and 9 spd chains is in the width, with the 9 spd chain being slightly narrower. You cannot use an 8 spd chain with a 9 spd transmission though. Provided that the chain does not fall into the gaps between each sprocket the only slight disadvantage that you may incur is that the shifting may not be quite as crisp. It is unlikely that you will notice any difference. Generally speaking....like for like quality and link length....the 9 spd chain will be slightly lighter as there is simply less metal in there. Personally, and regardless of all the sales hype from the industry, 8 spd chains are stronger....quality for quality. There is no substitute for metal. I use an 8spd set up for my " training in all filthy conditions " bike, as it simply outlasts and outshifts my 9 and 10 spd transmissions. Frankly the 10 spd is dreadful in mud and grime.

10 spd cassettes.

Can I use a 10 spd. mtb. cassette, say an 11-32 XT model, instead of an existing 11-28 10 spd. Ultegra model to lower the gearing..? I don't want to use the available 12 -30 Ultegra cogset as I don't want to lose the 11 tall gear cog.

Answer: 
Using a cassette of this width may function if the correct derailleur model is being used; however a MTB cassette will not shift as smoothly as a Road equivalent.

Answer: 
Your current cassette is a budget Shimano one, I think it is Acera level.
Try a Shimano XT M770 9 Speed MTB Cassette. This is only one level down from the top of the range XTR and is presently on offer with a number of on-line retailers (Chain Reaction being one), it also represents outstanding value for money because it will operate far better than the cassette that you currently use. It is better designed, will change gear far more smoothly......as the ramping is cut into the steel rather than pressed and is considerably lighter.. Provided that you change your chain regularly then the Shimano XT M770 9 Speed MTB Cassette will last for some time, and not rust. I have used this type of cassette on all of my bikes for more than ten years. It equals XTR level in every way except that it is a few grams heavier. As I ride in the U.K I cannot justify using an XTR (Titanium) cassette which is ridden in so much mud and grit. Regardless of the claims, titanium is an aero-space grade metal and will not last longer than quality stell as aircraft are not designed to operate in "grinding paste" type conditions. There is NO discernable difference in shifting quality between XT and the top of the range XTR.

Answer: 
Any of the higher quality Shimano cassettes with chrome plated sprockets will suit your needs. 105, Ultegra for road or Alevio, SLX for MTB will last very well without rusting.

Is there a current production 10 speed cassette that is NOT constructed with some sort of carrier?

I'd like to assemble a custom cog set to fit the SRAM/Shimano key way on typical drive shells (Hadley, King, Hope) for DH usage. I'd prefer something starting with an 11t and topping out about 28t, but I only want about 6 or 7 cogs. I'll fill the empty spaces left behind with single speed spacers.

Answers

Answer: 
All cassettes are constructed on a carrier.
I suspect that your intention is to create a bespoke cassette with ratios to suit you. Unfortunately the industry is so regulated by the manufacturers that such an idea is impossible.
If you shop around you may well be able to purchase a 7 speed cassette which would have the ratios closer to what you are looking for. Even .....possibly a 6 speed. They are still knocking about in smaller and cheaper back-street bike shops. The large companies will all tell you that you can't buy one because they are not interested in stocking such items.

Answer: 
Thank you for the replies. For anyone with a similar question, it turns out that, indeed, some of the cheaper cassettes are not built on carriers. (Shimano Deore-Alivio HG50 is one such example)

If the photos don't show the details, sometimes the customer reviews will help. When people complain about notching on their alloy free hub body, it's rather safe to assume at least some of the cogs are individual and not pinned to an alloy carrier.

The Hadley drive shell is Ti, where Chris King has a stainless steel option. Incidentally, FYI, I have both, and the splines still look new, so the cassette mangling and notching can be avoided if you're so inclined.

Cheers mates...

Answer: 
The cheaper Shimano cassettes have individual cogs that can be separated by removing the 3 pins. In this way you can construct a custom cassette, I do it for customers a lot with great success.

Answer: 
The freehub body of a 7 speed system is a few mm narrower than that of the 8speed

So - alas - the simple answer is NO.

However, the complicated answer is YES! You'll have to remove the hub spindle, and using a large allen key (can't recall if it's 10 or 12mm) unscrew the freehub body, and replace it with a more recent 8/9/10 freehub body. (8, 9 and 10 speed cassettes are all the same, total width), Make sure that cones and seals are compatible with the new freehub body, but it is possible to remove the dust cap from the old one, and re-use it in the new one.

Your overall hub width will increase by a couple off mm, so you may have to re-dish the wheel, or, if you fit an extra spacer on the LH side, that may do it, but it could be a tight fit in the frame. Make sure you have enough axle left to properly re-assemble the hub.

I've done this on several occasions, but I'm also a wheel builder, so for me, it's just as quick, and a lot less messy, to rebuild the rim onto a new hub.
