    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.

    Just got this Endless. Have no miles on it, but it looks quality. I do like my HBC's design a bit better, but endless has that simple elegance to it. I may be placing a few more orders with them. Fast shipping and great communication as well.

    Surly classic cogs have never let me down, fixed or single speed. HBC's design did look good, but for the love of whatever deity you prefer, DO NOT PLACE AN ORDER with them. I was about to a year ago until I came across the HBC thread in this forum. You have been forewarned.http://www.treefortbikes.com/images/...22338203-2.jpg

    What no love for the cheap stuff? I've been running a $24 Q2pro cog from pricepoint for over a year. Just now starting to wear a bit. I also love my 25t Rennen cog. It's a beast and a bit spendy but when you need a 25 tooth cog they are the only place that makes them.

    I do love the look of those King cogs though.

    Had two Endless cogs, which didn't last very long, now my first (and last) HBC has lasted 16 months with very little wear. May go Surly or King next.

    Which HBC? I bought an aluminum one a couple years ago but haven't used it. Dan said they will wear out quicker, so have been saving it.

    I've got boat anchor Surly's on my bikes. The Niner Ti looks pretty cool.

    How long do one of those cogs last you? Just picked one up. From the photos, I should've splurged and got a schmancy anodized.

    19t Aluminium. I also had a 17t, but gave it to a mate and he broke it when he snapped a chain. It was not any fault of the cog. I'm actually quite amazed mine has lasted this long, but I do flip it regularly.

    I've only been on Endless since late last year. Not quite long enough to attest to their durability. Like every cog option, and I mean EVERY, I've heard good things and bad over the years. I guess I'll see for myself soon enough.

    The Andel (S*rly) Cro-Mo Single Speed Cog looks nice with cut outs, is the base thicker than stamped? Hard to tell for sure from pics. Only source seems to be UK fleabay and the site you linked?

    I've used 22t Niner cog (aluminum), 21t On-One steel cog and 21t Andel steel cog - nothing wrong with all 3. I really like the Andel (velosolo) one. But this one's my fave, 20t Niner Ti cog - already had a 60, 40, (this month) and just this wkend a 50mile ride on it.

    Ditto.



    Although, I do wish HBC was still making stuff. Here's a 17T I have in my parts bin:

    I've always used Surlys. They work fine and don't cost too much; though I like those Endless cogs too...

    By the way: Holy CRAP you guys have some clean bikes!
