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)

Cog ID

A buddy of mine gave me this cog from his trials bike and I'm interested in using it, but I'm concerned about the teeth. Instead of coming to a point like other cogs, these teeth are flat on top. can anyone identify this and hopefully explain why the teeth are this way and if i shouldn't use? On the side it says "MH". Thanks for any info!

Are the teeth angled? If so, I think that may be a part of a dismantled multispeed freewheel. I had a cog that looked like that on my first conversion and it worked fine. However, it will not be spaced the same way a track cog is. Also, since the quality of the threads is unknown, I would say "use at your own risk".
