    Good job! So far so good on mine!

    I've been using my 20t for about 3 weeks and it is "like butta'!"... smooth as silk. But with only a few weeks it still has that Canadian new cog smell - so time will tell. It took some steep climbs a few days ago without any complaints - steep enought that I had to stop mid hill, turn around and charge at it again ...

    been using an 18t for over a year - no complaints whatsoever. I like it cause it's got a wide stance, like that 'not gay' congressman, so it doesn't damage my freehub (ti Hadley). In the year I've ridden it, it really doesn't show any wear - although I am a bit OCD about lubing my chain.

    Well...

    The guy who runs the operation is very good to deal with.

    I have 3 of the cogs.

    Two are out of round (one slightly, one pretty bad) that creates run-out like an off center crank or chainring. The other is good. The best thing is that the teeth are nice and tall which helps prevent chain-drop. Too bad about the 2 that are out of round because they are otherwise very nice cogs. I'm quite certain it's the cogs as I've played around with all the other factors and the "common denominator" is clearly the cogs.

    i won't say never, but i will say these would be the first.

    send the 2 outta wack back, i would like to measure myself (you understand), if they are messed up I will send you 3 good ones back.
    drop me an email [email protected] to confirm when you do send them.

    Like I said the guy is "very good to deal with".

    I'll send the one that has the most runout back. The one that was only slightly out was still good enough to use and I put miles on that one already. I'll shoot the one back to you and if you find it out of round a single replacement would be more than enough.

    I'll shoot you an email.

    Thanks,

    Mike
