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)

okay, so now that i have my new van dessel rear wheel, i need to know which cogs are compatible with the threads on the hub. i'm assuming that just something like a dura ace cog will work; but i know a few people in here have experience with this, so i thought i'd ask. i'm going to the LBS to order some parts tomorrow, so it's sort of important for me to figure this out soon. any of your help is greatly appreciated.

Dura Ace or anything not Campy should work.
Mine came with a 16t, but the newer bikes have an 18t instead.

i looked in their catalog, and the only lockrings i saw were the surly and a campy one. i guess i could ask about one, though. are the surlys unreliable?

Harris Cyclery has the Dura Ace lockrings for $7.95.

(On a side note--those Campy's are soooooooo expensive. I paid about $32 for a Campy.)

The surlys don't have quite the quality of threads that the Dura-Ace does.
