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)

Where can I buy 1/8" cassette cogs?

I have converted my MTB to a SS, and am now looking for a 1/8" cog. Could somebody please show me where I can find a 14t one? I have looked for hours, and I cannot find any 1/8" ones. Thanks in advance!

use a 3/32 cog, it'll work just as well.

I have to enquire, what are you doing putting a 14 tooth cog on a mountain bike? By which I mean to ask, how strong are your legs that you can use gearing like that?

I have a 32t 1/8" chainring. This is a dirt jumping/freestyle bike. Just saying MTB is a lot easier ^.^

The reason I am looking for a 14t 1/8" cog is because I am going to be using a 1/8" chain.

A 3/32 cog will work fine with a 1/8 chain.

I don't think you will find one. Use 3/32" cog. It will work just as well.

If you really want 1/8" it looks like Sturmey Archer makes some http://smartbikeparts.com/search_det...?itm=SBPHSL888

Will fit Shimano cassettes per http://www.sheldonbrown.com/harris/s...ed.html#s3xcog
