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)

Campy Hub = Campy Cog and Campy Lockring?

I'm tired of the low gearing my track bike has (it was used for early spring training by a roadie before I had it, and I have to spin my nuts off), but it's got Campy hubs, and I'm wondering, does that mean that replacement Cogs and Lockrings have to be Campy too?

or phil wood or miche.. you can get away with running an iso cog on an italian hub but grease that and install it properly... lockring standards are completely different.

try google.

Phil will also work well for both. I understand the threading on the cogs is slightly different on Italian threaded cogs which include Phil, EAI, and Campy, but the difference is so small that any cog should work. Not so with lockrings, but Phil, EAI, and Campy lockrings are all the correct threading.

Basically, you can use any cog, but need a campagnolo lockring. I use DA cogs on my phil hub with no problem, but I use phil lockrings. (Phil has same threading as campagnolo)

Hmmm. Well, I already have a lockring of course. So I guess all I'll need is a cog.
