    Who's making 17 tooth cogs?...

    Who's making 17 tooth cogs other than spot or king? Looking for something like the Novatech or DX cogs, just a basic cheapo steel cog, couldn't find any links on the web. Thanx,
    Vern

    if you can locate some old Uniglide twist-tooth cogs, grab them. if you're not using a tensioner, give a regular hyperglide cog a try. they seem to work ok for me, with no derailing or other funny stuff due to the ramps and varying tooth shapes. may be more problematic with a tensioner. and of course a perfect chain line always minimizes problems.

    I'm running Shimano DX BMX cogs for 3/32" chain in 16, 17 and 18. Oops, maybe I don't have a Shimano 17. Check out danscomp.com click on Bike Parts and then go to freewheels. They have Chris King cogs for 22.99. Not bad. Shimano's are 9.99, but no 17.

    White Industries has the great ENO cog in 17t config. Got one myself and it's solid and completely rebuildable.

    Definitely not cheap though - $80

    That's a freewheel, not a cog.

    As far as I know the Mosh bmx cog is the only DX style cog available in a 17t. I think Mosh is Giant bicycle co's BMX line up. Check with you local Giant dealer.

    re: 17 tooth cogs

    Thanx so much for the knowledge, the mosh (giant) is exactly what I'm after, looks identical to a novatech cog..Least I won't have to get one wirecut (edm) which would be very expensive, any tooth count you want would be possible

    Vern - I'm sure the Mosh cog is for a 1/8" chain. If you are using a BMX chain, you're good to go. But if you like to use a lighter 3/32" chain from a geared bike, the Mosh cog won't work.

    I just checked http://www.webcyclery.com/.docs/m/10...ct_search.html for 17t 3/32 cogs and, wow, no 17t in a Novatec or Shimano. I just gave my neighbor a 17t 3/32 single speed cog last night, maybe I need to get that baby back!

    The MOSH cogs are pretty much a carbon copy of the Shimano/Novatech cogs and work without problem with 3/32 chains. Don't worry be happy..If you have any problem finding them let me know and I pick one up for you at the Trip.

    17 tooth cogs "novatech dx style"

    Called Giant (Canadian office) and will have to call Giant USA, They are the Mosh bmx distribution in the USA only, No one else up here in Canada has these (nasty!) I'm going to try the the Giant USA office, see if they can help or as AKA Brad suggested, maybe find out if your local shop has 2 of the 17 tooth cogs.
    Thanx

    Yes, the Mosh cog will fit 3/32 chains. It looks almost exactly like the Novatec cog, The shimano is slightly different.

    Here is a pic...left is a 16t Novatec, center is the Mosh 17t, right is a Shimano DX 18t.
