    DC/Balto area SS friendly shops?

    Any suggestions for DC/Baltimore friendly shops that keep singlespeed parts (not necessarily complete bikes) in stock? I'm looking for a 16T King Cog for a race on Sunday.

    Here's my experience of places that keep things in stock, and stuff I'd seen there. (I don't work for any of them!)

    -Bike Lane in Burke - Surly & IF frames
    -City Bikes in Adams Morgan - Singleators and Surly hubs
    -College Park Bikes - ENO hubs, Phil Wood mtb and track stuff
    -Performance Bikes - SRAM chains often on sale (you can also price match)
    -REI in College Park - Big assortment of Salsa non-ramped chainrings in SS friendly sizes
    -Revolution Cycles in Georgetown - Phil Wood track stuff

    Any other shops to add to the list or where I can find my cog?

    Not sure about LBS's in the area but I have a 16t ShimaNO BMX cog you can borrow for the race.

    Not sure if he stocks the King Kogs...

    I've done business with Baltimore Bicycle Services via e-mail (the best shop I have ever dealt with). He normally has a good SS selection. It is a hole in the wall, but the service is exceptional. Hope this helps.

    Come on Drevil, you don't need a 16T for Sunday. What you want is a 20T, maybe even a 22T if you can find one. Yeah, that's the ticket!

    I could help here . . . . . .

    Ricky,

    It sounds like you have a few local offers. I assume you are going to the Cranky Monkey race on Sunday. I plan on being there. I do not have a King Kog, but I do have a 16 T Gusset cog. I will throw it in my bag and if you cannot find one before then, feel free to use this one.

    See you then.

    James from DE.

    I got some special ones made from pressed Beluga Caviar, but they were too soft and the teeth rounded out after one revolution. Quite a waste, if you ask me.

    Next I'll try carbon nanotubes, if those dang NASA guys down the road didn't take so long!

    You gonna be there, foo'? If so, it'll be good to know I won't be in last place.

    Thanks James. I haven't ridden 2:1 in at least 2 years, and I figured I should try it out before racing with that ratio. On the last few rides I felt like I was too spinny. Anyways, don't worry about it, I'll stick with my 32:17 for this weekend.

    Did you see the post on the DR forum about your Spot?

    Dang Karate Monkerers! You and JoeP have sped way up since riding those things. I know it can't be the training!

    You ain't kidding about Zoorope either. I never touched a bike, slept and woke up really late everyday, ate massive amounts of food and vino, vegged out on the beaches... ahhhhhhhh. Oh well, DT and I can battle for DFL.

    BTW, if you sign up for all three today, you'll save a ton of cash.
