    cogswell cogs or spacely space sprockets?

    looking at a new rear gear cluster and wonder which has the better quality,
    cogswell or spacely?

    i'm more familiar with the spacely's, but never owned any.

    i'd ask george, but he's not in customer support....

    input?

    Spacely was a lousy boss. I'd go with Cogswell.

    BTW, I don't think that anyone under 40 years old is going to know what we're talking about.

    (That's the two competing companies on The Jetsons, for those under 40.)

    And which two clusters are you really looking at? Or is the whole post a joke? And do you want light or durable?

    LOL, I'm 37, I got it...

    I'm down with Spacely Sprockets, especially when they come out with their new 18-speed rear cluster. Uses some sort of infinity generator to actually warp space/time and fit 18 cogs in a 120mm OLD frame.

    it was intended as a joke. i had this weird brain flash when i saw 'kogswell' on a bike frame or something.

    thanks, folks, for catching it and making smiles.

    Spacely Sprockets are certainly the trend, but I'm partial to the classic look and feel of Cogswell. There's nothing like the satisfying Zzzzzwuuupp! of a quasidimensional semi-gated upshift. Can't get that with a Sprocket.


    When I was little, I assumed a "sprocket" was like a "rocket" (made sense, given the theme of the cartoon), but I had no idea at all what a "cog" was.

    I had a Spacely gearset on my last full-suspension moonrover; durable, but high gear still didn't hit Warp 1, so I tried a Cogswell.

    Now I'm a year younger, but it cost me a gonad.

    I had gears in my Lego set so I was very familiar with the concept.

    Reminds me of the guy that said you knew you were getting old when you used to watch Ginger and MaryAnn, and now you find yourself thinking "That Mrs Howell's not half bad!"

    i had a brain lapse and had to do a search for my own thread using 'cogswell'.
    by yumpin' yimminy, there truly is nothing new-
    raygunner had a thread almost 6 years ago using almost the same title.
    posters didn't do the memory lane walk, though.
    he had a pic of a cog/sprocket and wanted an identification of it.
