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)

Cut my cog off with a dremel

I was going to post this to the thread I started about a month back, but I cannot find that thread. I am not a search idiot - the thread has vanished. I mentioned banging on the cog with a hammer; someone probably remembers it.

Anyway, I soaked the thing in pblaster and no dice. So I cut it off with a dremel.

Wow, that cog looks like a saw blade; it must have seen a few miles!

Don't tell me we all have to put up pictures of our chain whips. The first person to post one with a leather grip is kinky.

He had another thread where he was saying he couldn't get it off using a chain whip, hence this one about cutting it off using a Dremel.
