1. Format
This field controls the number of columns.

2. SearchTerm
The search term searches the title field for whatever string you enter. One possible use is to search for all the cassettes of a particular series. Eg: Search for "HG50" and you see that there are 8,9,and 10 speed himano HG50 cassettes.

3. SortOrder
Sort the results according to various fields. Some sort orders such as "Speeds" will do a secondary sort on Cost. Eg: If you look for 8 speed, you see the cheapest ones first.

4. Speeds
Use this to see just a list of the cassettes with a certain number of speeds. Eg: All the 8 speed cassettes.

5. Avail
Availability Level. Use this filter to get a list of the readily available cassettes. It seems that Shimano website only lists the specs for their latest models. Eg: They have a page for HG50-8 but not HG50-7. But numerous websites list the HG50-7.

  • Level 1. Rare: Cassette models that exist, and are still available on Amazon, etc. but not listed in the majority of websites.

  • Level 2. Older: Available on multiple websites such as Bikeman, Amazon, ChainReaction, ModernBike. But not listed by Shimano. And not in stock at MEC.

  • Level 3. (Current) Available everywhere. Cassettes that are currently available in Canada from most of the major stores. Eg: check MEC website.
