eh? I've ridden entire seasons with a 14 on the rear without changing it, done literally hundreds of sprints and starts during the season. end of the season, the cog comes off no problems using a half way decent shimano whip.
it's a myth that a lockring somehow magically stops the cog from further tightening via normal use.
one more time, it is simply not a requirement for a lockring on the track.
