    EAI Cogs OUt of Stock

    Does anyone know of a store online I can order EAI cogs?
    I have checked 3 or 4 places and everyone is out of stock with no estimate on when they will get more.
    This shortage seems to apply to certain sizes in 1/8".

    I am trying to get the deluxe (cheaper one) in 17 teeth for an 1/8" chain.

    Alternatively I can get a surly or more expensive EAI but I want to try and save some money. And although I could wait for them to be re-stocked, I don't think my knees can wait that long.

    I have been running 48 x 15 and let me tell you that is pretty tall for the hills around here and my knee health. Plus I want to be able to cut a chain to use both a 17 t fixed cog and my 18 tooth freewheel on a formula flip flop hub, keeping the 48 tooth front chainring.

    Any ideas, suggestions? Other cogs that people might suggest? Will I be able to run an 18 t freewheel and a 17 t fixed cog?
    I like bikes!

    Bens is out of stock.
    Harris is out of stock.
    A few others too (in that particular size).

    The LBs can get Surly or Rockworks (sp ?) in that size.
    I have heard of Surly but not rockworks.

    I really wish dura-ace came in 17t. Do you hear me Shimano?

    I will call peter white cycles tomorrow.

    Anyone know if either the EAI, Milwaukee, or Surly would give me the same chainline as the Dura-Ace?
    I am certainly no mechanic and want to make sure I get the same quality and chainline I get with what I currently have. I would stick with what I know but of course I can't get the size I want.

    To some that's just as meaningful as an NJS stamp believe it or not.

    Yeah, mostly people who were born in Milwaukee or other strange midwest cities.

    AMF did OK way back with some quality stuff. They weren't exactly small, I know, but some of their brands were quite acceptable. I especially liked the T-shirts back in the 70s that had the AMF/Head logo on them and said Give me Head.

    A cog is a cog is a cog. Surly, Soma, Rockwerks, DuraAce, Bens, IRO, EAI..any of these will do the trick. Buy whichever is cheapest. You won't notice the difference.

    Surly are just rebranded, cheap ass Grunge cogs...or the other way around. Either way, depending on the packaging, you could save a lot of money or waste a lot of money.
    Whatever you do youll have a mediocre cog.

    i was in the same situation a few weeks ago. my lbs (business cycles) was out of the eai deluxe 17t (1/8") and he said that eai was completely out of them as well.

    i ended up going w/ the milwaukee 17t. so far, its great!

    That's some pretty poor production planning, not that I believe your statement.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
