    19t freewheel

    Is Eno my only option. If so I don't mind but hey $90 is still 90 dollars.

    not sure about the only option, but a worthwhile option in my opinion. extra coin going to an improved drivetrain is money well spent. plus, you can find em cheaper than $90 (eg, http://www.bikemannetwork.com/biking/p/WINDFWENO)

    $90?! you should be able to find it for $75, if you're lucky less. I've seen other sizes go for 50-65 on the big E. But sometimes you gotta pay the piper.

    I called Absolute Bikes in Salida last week looking for some more teeth for my trip to Crested Butte. I seem to recall they had a 19 for a reasonable price, but can't remember the brand.

    Might be worth giving them a ring and seeing if they can send something to you. Better yet, stop in this weekend on your way to ride the Crest trail - c'mon, you know you want to.

    Shimano or ACS, check with your LBS.

    ENO is your only FW choice for 19T (and 21 & 23). I have a least one of each.

    Street price is much less than $90.

    What is this Crest trail you speak of? Is something going down this weekend that I don't know about?

    That would be the Monarch Crest trail off of Monarch pass. Salida just happens to be the town at the bottom of the hill.

    Well I have a 32t ring with an 18t freewheel now. I am thinking of getting the 19t and if it is too "easy" then switching to a 34t up front to return to about the same gearing.

    I think you are better off just going to the bikeman site and ordering one of those freewheels, instead of buying off their ebay auctions.

    I have followed their ebay auctions before, and people get so caught up in the auctions. I have seen items selling for more than they sell them for on their retail website.

    I've seen that. I think people expect they are getting a good deal and they don't know the real value of things so they bid to win. The same thing at a used sports store in my town. I went to buy used hocky stuff and some things I could get cheaper- new. However, i did stay away from purchasing the used cups.

    I should like to see one in the metal because ACS says they do not offer a 19T

    http://www.acsbmx.com/product-freewheels-claw.htm

    The "18-22T" pics on the shop site are all 20T.

    You're too sharp! I know the 22T exists because I have one sitting on my bench. BTW on the back it says INDIA. <- new low cost manufacturers?

    The now-defunct mtbstore.com advertised Adventure Components as having 19T.

    Lesson: Use cogs.

    This probably wont help, but here is a decent freewheel that comes in 18t and 20t. you could buy both of them for $32.

    How do you like them? Are they quality? They seem a little too cheap... but then again, why should a freewheel be expensive?

    Wow

    That site offers steel Chris King cogs for $26.50 as well. Sweet deal as I have heard of them going for over 150% of that price elsewhere. I wonder if they're in stock; I wonder if the site's pricing is up to date.

    How do I like the ACS Claws?

    Let's see... I have bought and used around 8 Claws.

    I have and use 4 ENO FWs.

    The ENOs are on my bike/wheels/toolbox.

    The Claws are somewhere in a box or the recycle bin.

    They still list "Sedis" chains, too. That was two buyouts ago - ten years? (Sedis -> Sachs -> SRAM).
