    your favorite rear cog?

    i was inspired by the "favorite chain ring" post. I'm building a new ss and need to buy a cog to slip onto the Hope Pro II SS rear hub.

    thanks!

    I've been really happy with endless cogs. They're round, pedal smooth, come in cool colors, seem to wear at least as well as stainless cogs I've had and they're made in the US

    If money wasn't an object I'd definitely get one of those niner titanium cogs though. Things look sweeeeeeeeet.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    King cogs have been the best for me as far as actually working correctly, being reasonably priced, and lasting.

    Looks-wise though I think the new Niner ti one looks great and Boone stuff is beautiful.

    I have mostly Surly cogs (and 1 HBC), but I am going to start buying Endless. Looks quality.

    I've got a Lunar quick change cog, and I love it. The wide cog base is very friendly to aluminum free hub bodies, and it's really easy and quick to change cog sizes.

    I ride King and Surly, but if I ever have the cash, I'd get a Niner TI.

    Have to agree my HBC 18 tooth cog is a beauty paired with a sram PC1 chain.
    CK is next by a slim margin; the rest well sorry they don't cut it.
    I run 180mm m985 cranks with a 30T front ring. CK ceramic BB in a Niner Biocentric 2 EBB assembly.

    My favorite cog is my home made motorcycle style cog bolted together with a White Industries freewheel.


    Construction was pretty simple work on a mini lathe with some stainless steel bolts on the back side to attach the cog to a cut down WI free wheel body. I cut the bolts flush after installing the cog.

    I like using 22 tooth cogs. Right now the setup is paired with a 36 tooth ring gives me a combo that works for most of the trails. I also have a 38 tooth ring that I can swap out in the front.

    I am not sure which one should I fave since I live in south east asia so far I could only find some taiwan made steel stamp cog that's looks like dimension, surly, and shimano cromo cog.

    I only can afford the taiwan made and shimano though. I am really out of option in here since SS parts is very uncommon here.

    I use surly, I like them for their durability, however I really want a kickass cog to try out. I have a feeling I'll wear it out fairly quickly compared to my surly though.

    Those look interesting, although just looks like Surly with slots instead of round holes...can't find a good pic to see how the thickness/profile is from an edge-wise view.

    OE cheap stamped steel until they wear out and then Surly for me...so far. EDDIT: just found pic here: Singleworks cogs? and they look a little lighter weight than Surly.

    Very interesting!

    Niner cogs are aluminum, I'll pass as imo that wears out way too fast.

    All I can find in Chris King is stainless steel cogs? The pics on his site are just boring no cut-outs or anything.
