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)

Gary Fisher Rig

What kind of cogs does the GF Rig take, and what all is involved in changing one?

Nah, it's not a freewheel. It's just some flat metal cog.

Post a picture. Sounds like a cassette cog. Does it have threads or a spline pattern?

Yeah, GF Rig Mountain Bike. I've got a fixed gear road bike and it has a fixed cog on one side and it has a freewheel on the other, and I just know that whatever is on the Rig isn't either of those.

and you're not in luck. Of all the cogs. I have a 19t and 17t Chris King Cog.

Let me know if you need either one

Ah, I've got a 19 now and I think a 17 would be too hard. Thanks for looking though.

You should be able to pick up a cassette cog at the local bike shop for $5-8. It may be called a BMX cog.
