    i think those free/free hubs will need surly cogs and lock rings. the fixed/free hubs can take normal cogs.

    Euro Asia Imports cogs also work fine with the Surly free/frees.

    The EAI cogs have more threads to engage than the Surlys. If you're using a free hub, mo' threads is mo' better. I have been running an EAI cog on one side my Surly hub for 2 years now with no problems. I stripped the other side in one ride with a cheopo cog.

    Yup, my buddy DmofoT stripped his high-end Eno hub with a Dura-Ace cog. I don't think they're cheap, but maybe those cogs just didn't have enough threads?
