    Miche hubs don't work with ISO threaded cogs - other options?

    There's a bunch of old threads on BF that claim Miche hubs can take any standard ISO threaded cog. I tried it with my hub, an older model (without "Miche" printed on the flange), and it doesn't work. An EAI cog threaded on about 2 rotations and then it started very obviously binding.

    I have the special carrier and cog, so I'm planning to use that for the wheelset I'm building up, and just see how it goes. This post is mostly a heads-up for anyone interested in the hub. I've seen pics on velospace of Miche/EAI setups but I have no idea how they got the cog on. Maybe it only works with the newer models?

    But does anyone know if there are Italian-threaded normal cogs? I googled but couldn't find anything.

    I have a wheel set with Miche hubs that I got early this year. They cog I'm currently using came off of a Formula hub. The lockring is Italian threaded, the bearings are a less common size, they require a 13 and 17 cone wrench, and the way the bearings are in there is not as simple as a Formula hub. On mine the only normal thing is the cog.
    The bums will always lose.

    Wow, thanks for the info. It definitely sounds like there are differences from year to year in their track hubs.

    I really hope they don't cause me headaches in the future.

    FWIW, I had a the Miche Pr1mato hubs built up about a year ago and they took a EAI and D/A cog just fine.

    As pointed out, they take a different lockring though.
