Is this a special cog? Cause if it's just a regular one. I have a 16t DA you can have for $10. Not much wear on it.

I'm not completely sure if DA Cogs fit on campy hubs, I think it's just EAI and Phil ones that do.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think we've had this discussion as it related to that company that offered free Sidi's. But, does anyone know of a place downtown that does orthotics? There was a place in my building, but I have to pay a $70 fee to meet with the person for them to determine whether I need them ("but I have a presciption" "well we still need the $70") plus the orthotics were pretty expensive.

At that price, I'd get the free Sidi's!

I had my molds made last week. It's expensive however, regardless of "free" shoes. The main reason I'm going for it is because my health benefits cover it. (that and I've started to experience the first twinges of knee pain, and I don't want to go through that whole thing again this year)

I had my Orthotics made at https://www.walkingmobility.ca/ and they were nearly $600... Fortunately my insurance covered a bit but I still basically bought $400 insoles!

Despite my flat feet, I insisted that I didn't need the Orthotics and my knee problems were a result of something else. They insisted that I needed them, I bought them and found out I had a bone fragment the size of a marble floating around in my knee - once removed, my knee functioned perfectly and I never wear the Orthotics... what a waste!

Yeah, it was pretty sucky. It would often make it's way into places where other things should be (you know... nothing important... Tendons, Ligaments... those sorts of things) which would push them out and caused a great deal of pain... But, they opened me up, popped that sucker out and I was back on a bike within 2 weeks.

Naw that was the first time I ruptured ligaments in my knee doing a ramp to ramp transfer on vert, bled 100CC into the knee. Sutured out with a big honkin needle into the joint. 6 years ago dislocated the kneecap, tearing holes in the back of the cap and a pinkie nail size huck of bone missing from cup of joint in lower part of knee. Arthroscopic to remove fragments....and they want to cork the hole with drilled out bone and cartilage ...allograph? something like that, i'll wait til I can't ride or walk before I let them fillet my knee like a fish TYVM. My knees feel better than they did 20 years ago. No more creaking and groaning from water, swollen soft tissue.. scar tissue, scabs...

Now my back however...... who knew my mom was right?

I saw a guy at MEC last night and he looked SUPER familiar, and I couldn't figure out who he was. He had a PAC messenger bag on and was obviously a cyclist, so I knew that was the connection. It was driving me nuts.. we were in line together, a few people apart. I'm sure he either recognized me too, or just thought I was creepy.

Anyway, as I was getting checked through I realized it's a guy I see all the time riding in the Don. I actually don't know him at all, just from saying 'hey' while riding past each other (it was the guy we rode up that one dead-end climb with after riding P-A, Brad). But I've seen him so many times that I recognized him immediately.

I <3 cycling.

Confirmed today - we@bikechain tried gently threading Operator's cog onto toby's campy hub + no go.. I think those wacky italians use a different thread pitch?

I'm on a pretty flexible schedule right now and I don't really want to go 100% nuts on the work (I don't really need the money, just some place to do some work). ironically I feel better fixing someones bike for free than for money. How the hell does that work

Campy hubs were made in both Italian pitch and English pitch. It might have it stamped on the hub flange right next to the thread.
