    To each his own I guess. I avoid excessive cassette wear by replacing chains well before they reach .75. If a cassette is so worn that a new chain skips on it then it is time for a replacement.

    Yeah man, do what you want, I was just explaining why I do it. I'm actually doing 3 chains, just tried making it seem simpler. Guessing you might be able to squeeze 4.
