    Get steel.

    Cheap - Surly 20T for about $20ish
    Expensive - Chris King 20T for about $45ish

    My question is more because i'm new to this. Are all 20t cogs the same? Is there a certain type I need for a monocog?

    You need a splined cog and not the threaded (screwed on) kind. Surly works fine. ISuckatRiding's are puurty.

    Do ISAR. It is the best choice on a lot of levels.

    Gusset stamped steel cog lasts loooong and costs next to nothing.

    But stamped cogs wear away the freehub body much faster, get something with a wide "foot". Yeah a $5 cog may be tempting but spend $20 more and save yourself in the long run.

    The stamped cog I used entrenched itself into my freehub body in 1 hard ride. Zero problems with wide base cogs(Surly).

    I think ISAR needs to make fixed cogs that bolt onto the rotor mount Hipster AND stylish

    Endless Bike Company's Kick-Ass-Cogs, great product!

    "At a full quarter inch wide (6.35mm) at the splines, Kick-Ass-Cogs simply will not damage your free hub body the way a narrower cog can. Made of high strength 7075-T6 alloy (Stronger and harder than most common steels), Kick-Ass-Cogs are precision machined insuring perfect axial and radial alignment that compliments the superior chain lines that cassette style hubs allow.
    The specially engineered tooth profile on Kick-Ass-Cogs improves both cog and chain life while minimizing drive train friction. With a Kick-Ass-Cog on your bike, you can expect a smooth, quiet drivetrain for miles to come.
    Like all EndlessBikeCo. Products, Kick-Ass-Cogs are made right here in Western North Carolina; not in some faceless factory on the other side of the planet."

    Not sure about the 7075-T6 alloy and how good it is but I still think stainless steel is a better choice for cogs

    +1 . The more you ride your bike, the more it matters.

    Well if if the OP doesn't ride much and it doesn't matter I'd just suggest skipping the alloy and go with those shattty stamped cogs that someone suggested earlier

    Does anybody from Gusset post up on MTBR?
    What about Surly? King? Endless? If any of them are, I have never seen it.
    Support those that support the forum.
    I know ISAR is on here all the time.

    I have over 700 miles on mine, and it still looks like new... although last summer was very dry up here in New Hampshire. I'm sticking with em' till there's a reason to change!
