    Where to buy SS parts?

    I just bought a SS with 34:20 gearing. I bought it mainly for riding to the gym and other 'round town duties though I might take it out for a spin on some trails to try it out. The trouble is that with 34:20 I spin out a lot when riding on the road, and I'd like to change it to 34:16. My question is, where is the best place to buy a 16 tooth gear? It doesn't have to be anything fancy (cheaper is better). Thanks

    - Jen.

    Your LBS might be able to hook you up, but if not, try here:

    Bikeman.com is a good source for SS stuff. Good prices and good service. You might want to consider a 34:17, the common SS ratio 2:1. Good all around ratio. But you won't have much difference between a 34:16 and 34:17 and the 16 is easier to find.

    Go to ebay, hit the 'Cycling' section and search for '16T' and see what you come up with. You might score a cog on the cheap there. Alternatively, if you're not too picky, then a $4 Novatec or Shimano cog from Webcyclery or Excel Sports would do nicely.

    webcyclery may not be the absolute cheapest on the net, but they are great to deal with. I have built up 3 new bikes in the last 2 months, ordered from many places, and webcyclery is at the top for service. I needed a part soon and webcyclery upgraded me to 2-day air on them because they were going to be delayed a day getting it. very good at keeping you in the loop as to what is happening with your order, unlike most on the net.

    Agree. If you have a shop/retailer that you love, then great. But if you are looking for one with a great selection of niche parts and great service, Webcyclery is top notch.
