    15/19 cog anyone?

    i'm fixing up my old custom mtb with totally vertical dropouts (NO horizontal play). anyone in boston have a 15 or 19 tooth cog they could part with for a few days, so i can try them out and see if it will work without doing too much filing to my dropouts/axle? they seem to be the closest by far for my chainstay length with a 36 tooth chainring.

    i don't feel like dropping 15-20 on a cog that i'll have no use for if it doesn't work (cause if it doesn't and i still want to do this, i'll probably be dropping quite a bit more on an eno hub), as i'm real short on funds these days!

    thanks!

    Even if you get it working, you'll probably get boned by chain stretch later down the road.

    You know you want the ENO hub. Give in.

    It is true, the ENO will not be denied. I love mine-worth every penny.

    i'm not setitng this up as a daily ride, i just want to set it up and see how i like it as a fixed gear. if i decide i like it, i'm going to need a new back wheel (i'm just using my old mavic hub/rim, and don't like the idea of extended brakeless riding wihtout a lockring), and will probably go for the eno. alexi - consider yourself pm'ed.
