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)

you don't want one. seriously.
a cog is the last place you want to skimp; it's unsafe and false economy to boot, as you're more likely to trash your hub with a cheap cog.

try to scrounge up another $10 and get an eai, you'll be glad you did.

don't waste your money on a cheap cog. cheap cogs are made like crap in order to be cheap. It'll be more expensive to replace your stripped hub when your cheap cog mangles the threads.
You can get a EAI for around $30 from any number of places. businesscycles, for example. maybe even your lbs.

If you could get by with a 16, Ben's Cycle on eBay would get you a DuraAce in either 1/8 or 3/32 for $21.99 shipped..

your LBS can order them from any number of distributors. i.e. QBP, EAI.
