    SS Cog Question

    So I have a 9 speed Dura Ace 12-24 cassette in good condition just laying around. Since it comes apart fully, can I use the individual cogs as a rear cog till I find out what cog I want? Will I have any issues? I think they are ti as well.

    It isn't recommend. For one the cogs in a cassette are designed to allow or even promote the chain to move off of it. Secondly the narrowness of the cog will gouge the free hub body...very badly if the FH body is aluminum.

    I just dropped a 15t off an XT cassette on mine to experiment with gear choices - once I figure out what gear I want, I will be purchasing a heavy-duty SS cog! To be honest thought, I am a bit skeptical about the chain coming off of it, its so tight I don't see how that is possible?

    I've used single cassette cogs and had no issues, and I've used single cassette cogs that skipped like crazy. In my experience it isn't worth it to run a drive train that might let the chain skip when you're pushing the hardest, that's why I don't recommend it.
