This offering is for a new-old-stock Shimano CS HG-90 cassette (8-speed) with 13-14-15-17-19-21-23-26 gearing. This is an older cassette unit...mid 90's vintage to be exact, but it is HyperGlide compatible, as the shift ramps, etc. that are characteristic of HyperGlide cassettes are easily identifiable on this unit. It is also a higher-end unit, as the HG-90 cassettes were typically compatible with (and considered equivalents to) Shimano 600/Ultegra or Deore XT drivetrain components. Although, this cassette will probably mount on just about any Shimano 8/9/10-speed HyperGlide freehub with few exceptions.
Having said the above, we measured the "stack height" (for lack of a better term) of this cassette and noted it to be about 38 mm (using our digital calipers). We thought this additional measurement would help ensure compatibility, should you want to measure the width of the intended splined freehub body and compare it to our measurement. One final comment on compatibility...please note the HyperGlide cassette design includes a separate threaded lockring that threads into the underside/inside of a freehub body (and this is Shimano's preferred freehub design since the early 90's). As a result, most Shimano freehubs on today's market will be HyperGlide compatible, but please be mindful of Shimano's older freehub bodies with visible external threading at the end of the freehub body, as this older design is generally not compatible with one of these HyperGlide cassettes.
In terms of condition, most of these Shimano cassettes were bulk-packed, but this one includes it's original retail box and shows no wear on any of the teeth.

Note to international customers regarding shipping...
We apologize to those that feel some of our international shipping charges are too high. We only charge actual shipping rates, but once an order exceeds a certain amount, we hesitate to use the least expensive US Postal Services First Class International service. We feel this way, because this service is not trackable or insurable...so more risk of loss. We prefer the US Postal Services Priority Mail International service for more expensive orders, because this service is trackable at USPS.com and insurable...so less risk of loss. Unfortunately, this service is more expensive, especially for smaller/lighter packages, relative to the First Class International service. We are sorry about these higher shipping costs, but hopefully our notes help to explain why this is the case.
Note to international customers regarding customs...
We also apologize to those that feel their country import taxes, duties and brokerage fees are excessive. As a small US business, we are required by customs' laws to declare each order as a retail sale. Additionally, the declared order value must be equal to total store purchases and/or winning auction bids (less any shipping costs, as these are not considered in the declared value). As a result, each customer will be responsible for paying his/her own country taxes, duties and brokerage fees, which will be collected upon delivery. Again, we apologize for these additional costs, but we cannot afford the penalties and fines that come with breaking customs' laws...so we have to strictly abide by them.
