    I have also heard good things about the Pake Space Straps. When my MKS nylon ones kick the bucket, I'll give them a shot.

    That is intense... I've been pleased if I can average around 16 for a 100 mile(-ish) ride. I need to find places to ride with more rollers and less mountains.

    I did this for a while (with a 46) until I dropped my chain on a busy street and realized life's too short for biopace. It was pretty fine until then, though!

    Formula hubs have fine threads, so I doubt that's the culprit. Was the cog from a reputable company, or was it a stamped POS? Was this part of a complete bike? If it was fully installed by the shop,...

    Yeah, I'd say that's a good idea - if they want to get a bunch of bikes out in the street in the new market, a group buy is a damn good way to do it.

    You can also spend $30 on the soma or all-city double straps, and get two sets of the MKS nylon straps for $20. Never used Toshis but nylon beats every cheap to mid-level...
