Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Miche Hub Threads

I can't find it now, but recently someone mentioned that the Miche hubs have a non-standard threading on them and that the threading of industry-standard cogs, such as EAI and Soma, will either not work or eventually destroy the Miche hubs.
Would someone who has Miche hubs, and who doesn't use the Miche adapter and Miche cogs, please comment on the truth or untruth of this?
Thanks.

The threading for the cog itself is standard, but Miche hubs use the same lockring threading as Campys (which is different than Suzue, Shimano, Formula, etc).

aren't miche hubs ISO threaded? vs. english thread cogs like DA, EAI?
As far as I understand it, you can mix and match but once you thread one type on you've gotta keep using it, repeated mxiing would mess up the threads.
