    alloy freewheel..are there steel cogs that will fit?

    i have a zeus alloy 6 speed freewheel hub, and was wondering if there are steel cogs that will fit on the body?

    very similar to this one, but I have a racing block. 12-18

    I'd recommend just getting a new freewheel. you can get six-speed freewheels, good new stuff, for pretty cheap, and certainly cheaper than what you'd pay if you can find new steel replacement cogs for a certain freewheel body.

    Zeus hasn't been distributed in this country for years (decades?) and replacement parts, if available anywhere, will be a premium prices. In fact, I'm not sure Zeus is still in business anywhere.

    Assuming the hub threads are standard English or Italian, a new or NOS freewheel would be a far better alternative.

    Hi Tim. Where have you been? I haven't seen you post for a while.
