    Cogs

    Hi Guys,

    I am using Endless cog, size 18 and no problems so far. Nice bling factor also.

    Now I want to buy 19 & 20 t cogs as well.

    Do you have any comments of other cogs in market (Surly, Wolftooth etc etc), meaning what is the best and maybe which ones are not so good...

    I see that Surly is cheaper than Endless... Also is it best to go for stainless over aluminium?

    Thanks for comments!

    I only run Chris King stainless cogs. A little more expensive than Surly, but quite a bit lighter, and more bling. They last forever, so I feel they are worth the extra cost. However, I will say, those Endless cogs look great.

    Any experience for Wolftooth stainless cog? Seems to be easier to get hold of one here in Europe than CK.

    No experience here, but they look really similar to the kings. I say go for it!

    I got some Dice cogs from Oz.
    Working well so far and got 4 for the price of a Surly.

    Other cogs are a collection of Surly and a 18t King.
    Oh and a 20t Niner alloy that I haven't plucked up the courage to use yet.

    I have two Wolftooth cogs laying on my desk as I type this. One is 2 years old and bent. I emailed them to ask if they wanted to look at it and see why it bent (it was out of warranty, so no expectations there) and they looked my order up, and figured out I had an old design of their cog that had some problems, so they sent me a new one. No charge. Remember, it was out of warranty too. There is a clear difference in the design of the two cogs as well, so I'm optimistic the new one will hold up better. Otherwise, while I was using the old cog, never had a problem til it folded up on me.

    Surly or Chris Kings. I've used both and both worked very well.

    I run an 18t wolftooth on one of my SS's. Very good quality. It looks damn near new after about 2 years. The wider inner surface doesn't cut into my freehub body either.

    I've not had a great experience w the wolf tooth stainless cogs...seem like a chris king copy, but they must use a different kind of stainless steel. I've had all kinds of derailing issues with mine (even after checking and doublechecking the chainline) so I have no confidence in it.
    CK all the way...last a long time!

    My Chris King cog has been so durable that I didn't hesitate buying additional sizes gently used on Ebay. They have a wide base that works with alloy freehub, and it has great chain retention with 8-speed or 3/32 chain. The teeth may be too thick for narrower chain(?), but I'm sure this is a big reason they are so durable and don't derail.

    I always go for steel cogs because I want my bike to be as low maintenance as possible. The CK cogs are competitive on weight with alloy, so I don't see any reason to compromise durability by using alloy cogs.

    - using a 22T Wolftooth cog, barely worn after 1000 miles, looks like it could go another 9000........

    I have a 19t Endless that has probably 2000miles on it. I also have and endless 20t with far fewer miles since I simply use it less. I picked up a Niner 18t cog that a used for few rides depending on terrain. So I can't really give feedback the longevity of that cog, but I can say the endless has been really good. I was concerned with aluminium also, but it seems to work fine

    What mack_turtle said.

    I have a few Endless cogs they don't last long. I wasn't able to get a season of racing out of my 19t

    My surly's last for ever never a problem.
    Too Many .

    I used BikeDomeWorks cogs from the 'Bay.

    Apart from the different hole pattern, they look suspiciously similar to Surly's.
    Ride more!
