    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.

    I just really want a Milwaukee Bicycle Co. part on my bike so I went ahead and got one. Sorry Japan[I'm still wearing Sugino cranks though].

    well that's awesome,

    but if there's one milwaukee part to put on your bike it's the crusher.


    okay, or maybe the pologuard.

    what a waste of aluminum and $.
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”

    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?
