    How's this drivetrain?

    My old drivetrain is worn so I'm considering going with:

    Niner Cogalicious Cog
    DMR STS Chain Tensioner
    KMC Z610HX 1 speed chain or SRAM PC 870 or ???
    FSA chainring (already have)

    Seems like it'll be a good setup for a very reasonable price, but would you change anything?

    How's this drivetrain?

    I am really happy with the KMC Z610HX chains. It is the only chain that I haven't been able to "stretch" beyond .75mm (chain wear measuring tool thingy) in a few rides. At 220# I'm tough on drivetrains and only the KMC has lasted a reasonable amount of mileage.

    I tried a Niner cog when it first came out. I think I wore through it in record time. Then I went to stainless steel cogs and never bought another aluminum cog.

    Thanks, I think I'll go with another Surly instead. Also, it seems like KMC chains tend to last longer for people than SRAM, so I'll go that route too.
