    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! So tell me if this will work?

    Ok I want to run a lower profile front chain ring on my new bike, but I like my gear ratio thats on my other bike, so I decided to get a smaller rear cog. I'll be running a 12:26 gear ratio.

    Anyway I ordered this cog already: http://www.danscomp.com/461059.php (I have normal casset hub)

    Now heres the problem, I have heard that you need lower profile spacers when you run a 12 tooth cog because the chain hits them, is this true?

    In any case I was looking for some spacer kits that come with a lock ring and this one looks pretty cool, let me know if you think this would work out: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/151...og-Spacers.htm

    thanks

    I don't know if you need lower profile spacers, I do know that the chain can't hold onto the smaller cogs as well, so proper tension will be crucial. The 26T front will help engage more teeth.

    That cog will not work on a Shimano body.

    running small cogs also results in a less efficient drivetrain, which is one reason why most people run the middle of the road sizes. You want to wrap a decent amount of chain at both ends.

    I run a 9:22 gear on my bmx, so I see no reason why 12:26 would be any worse. I have a half link in my chain as well.

    Why not? It has 9 pauls and says that it fits most cassette hubs

    Shimano splines are not evenly spaced. It is keyed.
    You may to ride 28x13 instead. I've only seen Surly's go down to 13T.

    The cog you linked too says that it fits...
    2-pc drivers. Fits Odyssey, Mosh, Premium and most Joytech cassette hubs. 1/8"

    It does not say that it will fit a standard shimano cassette. So....I'm guessing that it won't fit, no matter what spacers you use.

    And because that HALO hub has lengthly splines, it is probably 8/9spd Shimano compatible. Besides, that cog you are buying looks like a cheap POS. Get something with a wide base that won't eat up your freehub body.

    i think it will fit... ive had experience with a sinz cassette hub using da10 speed cogs on it and im almost positive it has the same freehub body system as the odyssey cassettes use.

    * i second that its a cheap cog... but id go for it anyway.

    Ok I just got in the mail today. I compared it to a cog I had used before and it matches 100 percent.

    Now I just need to know if I need to know if this spacer kit will work or or not?

    The chain goes down pretty far:

    Looks like it will work okay, as well as it being everything you wanted. It looks like they even show it on the same HALO hub.
