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)

What are these cogs?

http://cgi.ebay.com/EURO-ASIA-TRACK-...QQcmdZViewItem

Anyone used these? I need to buy a cog for a new wheelset I bought, so I want something decent. Thinking Surly if not this. Also, if someone has used these or knows about them, will they fit on Dura-Ace HF hubs?

Thank ya.

Much better than Surly IMO. I love EAI cogs..definately on par with dura-ace. I feel like these run quieter too.

So to summarize, go for it, you won't be dissapointed

really? i have a few d-a, suntour, eai, and campy cogs... i find the eai's to be far superior to d-a, and on par with the campy ones. i like how beefy they are and feel like they're super durable. i suppose the d-a ones are lighter though.

I recently bought an EAI cog and I have to say I was floored at how nice it was. Easily on par with DA. Smooth as silk. The first one I had a couple of years ago was not as nice for sure. I would highly recommend them.

over half a year and it shows little wear.

Phil=meh. Loose the cheesy tinfoil plating and charge $20 less. Or go all the way and chrome it out Tomity-style to make that premium price mean something.

I've finally found the courage to admit that I just don't like their products that much. Flame away if you must.

The chrome looks great when new, but the chrome peels off after awhile. I say go for the un-chromed EAI cogs.

Phil cogs work well, last a long time, are quiet, and look nice. Yes they are a bit steep in cost, but so is everything else involving track backs and in the end whats 20 extra dollars on a bike where a good wheelset will cost 300+.

I do have a tomity cog too though and mmm MM that thing is nice. If he only made bigger than 16t! (or I could find smaller 151bcd chainrings).

Sheldon rates them Phil>EAI>D-A=Surly=Rockwerks. I have 2 EAI cogs and I haven't had any issues with them. But I've never used anything else, so take that with a grain of salt.

We'll see how long they last. They were just released a year ago right? I do not doubt the quality of their products. I just question whether they are worth the premium price. But yes, you're right, $20 isn't the end of the world. I was personally sort of disappointed in my Phil cog and yet pleasantly surprised at how nice this new EAI one was.

I would love one of those Tomity cogs. One day, when I have money, I'll hit him up.
