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)

ISO v Italian threads

Alright, so I'm getting some conflicting information about this. I've came across this post in another thread regarding a similar issue:

No. Cogs are not totally interchangeable.

in short:

I'm running one of the new Surly cogs on my Dura Ace wheels, which their website says is compatible with "most English, Italian and Japanese hubs." Would threading that thing onto a Record hub trash the threads then? I was reading the review on FGG on the Miche cog carrier system and the little adendum at the end. I guess what I'm asking is whether the Miche is a better alternative than the Surly for my Record wheels.

the short answer is no, it won't trash the threads.
the long answer is, if you change cogs a lot it will.
iso and italian hub threads are close but not identical ( and every time you thread one on to the other the cog will remove a little thread material.
