SS cog from an old cassette
Just got my first SS (GT Peace 9r), and had my first ride yesterday thru the snow. The ride along the dirt snow in packed snow was fine, but when I hit a flat trail that was semi-packed from walkers and skiers, I had a heck of time. The gearing on the bike is 36x18. I think if I switch to a 22 cog it would help in the slow going of the snow trails. I have an old cassette in the parts box, just wondering if I can take the cassette apart and use a cog from there? Its a 9 speed cassette, so I figure the teeth of the cog will be narrower. Or should I just go buy a SS cog in 22 size. Given the position of the axle, I think I'll need to buy a new chain to handle the new cog, so I need to place an order anyway.
