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)

Milwaukee Bicycle Co. Cogs

Anyone tried the MKE cogs? They look decent, made in the U.S. machined, etc.
It's between these and a dura ace.

thanks.

well that's awesome,

The very fact that Milwaukee even makes that junk is enough to steer me away from one of their cogs.
Dura-Ace forever.

Aside from the pretty slick look of a dura-ace cog is there really any advantage to X cog over Y cog... seriously? I had an EAI cog for a while and it looks dope compared to my current Surly piece of ****, but they both function the exact same way. Can't see anyone busting a cog in half either, or breaking teeth off.

Do they wear down to little reptaur nublet teeth or something?
