    Miche Quick-Change Splined Sprocket

    http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/fixed-sprockets.html

    Does this screw onto the lockring part or the cog part?

    Cog part, you still need to use a lockring with this system. In fact, it's imperative that you do, the lockring is what holds the splined cog onto its carrier.

    The 'carrier" screws on to the cog threads just like a cog. You then place the compatible cog into it...screw on your lockring and you are good to go..

    From Sheldon Brown:
    "This system consists of an adaptor that threads on to any standard track hub, and 6-splined sprockets that slip on to the adaptor. The splined sprockets are held in place by the normal track lockring."

    There are people that love them, some hate them..and the one reviewer I saw that loved them and after they wore, now hates them.

    Brand new, they are pretty cool, the cog is on there tight, and can easily be changed...but after wearing..the cogs get a little "sloppy" in the carrier. This reviewer said that the wear was on both the cog and carrier, so he could not just switch out one and get it fixed, but rather both parts were wrecked.

    In another thread, a guy said that his carrier is still good, and his original cogs are tight, but he bought a couple of new cogs and they are loose...seems like it is more hassle than needed.

    been working pretty good for me.
    Especially handy if you have a single sided hub and you swap cogs often.

    i've written about these on here before...
    if the bike is just gonna be used on the track, and you change cogs often, the setup is awesome...
    on the street, not so much...
    they will develop a bit of slop, not much, but it'll be noticable if you trackstand, and you need to be real careful about having everything down super tight... assuming you apply any back pressure whatsoever, have the cog or lockring just a little bit loose and you can kiss your lockring threads goodbye...

    also, since my knee injury i have fully retired my 14 tooth, and just have an 18 on there... the old 14 stays on my keys, and after a bit of practice, opens beers very well...
