    SS cog that won't damage FW

    I just ordered a Transition TransAM and I was going to build it 1x9, but I am mulling over just making it a full blown SS. I already have a shiny new rear wheel that I was going to use for the build. It is a Hope Pro 2 hub with Stans Flow rim and a geared FW. I would really hate to damage the freewheel with a cheap cog, but I don't really know where to find a good wide one. I already have a Blackspire mono veloce 32T ring and a PG990 chain so it would have to be 3/32 compatible.

    EDIT: I found this Surly cog. Can anyone vouch for the quality?

    The Surly cogs have wide bases, work fine with geared chains and are pretty easy to find. I think I got mine from pricepoint.

    Endless Bike Company Kick-Ass Cogs have a wide base. I'm using them on my Jaber with not problems

    I have had good luck with Endless cogs, but I really REALLY like the cog I got from Dan aka Homebrewed Components, who is also a regular poster here in this very forum!

    +1 on the Surly Cog. They are real nice but I suppose they are a bit heavy...but really that doesnt even matter because you are paying for a high quality product that will probably outlast the bike itself!

    I've been using On-One "Groove Armada" cogs which don't look totally different from the Surly. Working great.

    I just ordered some Gusset cogs. They look like the base may be even wider:

    I've used Surly and King for several years (different sizes) -- no problems with either.

    Go with the Homebrewed Components rear cog. It's as freehub friendly as any, and light as any. The craftsmanship is outstanding. The price is also excellent, and you'll be supporting a fellow rider and forum member. In fact, check out his monster thread in this forum.
