    Anyone else running a VeloSolo cog?

    just got mine surprisingly fast (~1.5 wks) from the UK. Got it cos it's a cheaper gold cog than i could find elsewhere (i don't need an EAI Gold Medal, who does, really) and i really like the quality so far (nice threads, quiet, thick teeth), lightish, too. I would have bought from the US but i didn't see any US dealers.

    It is Aluminum, but i can't see it wearing out fast as beefy as it is.

    I've got a velosolo but it's steel and it's a bolt on. Pretty sure I've posted a picture around these parts back when I was making a contribution.

    i agree - fast shipping

    Aluminum? Will you be riding that particular bike?

    Well, ride it and report back on how well (or not) it wears.
