I need a 28 to save my knees on the Death Ride. I ordered one from Harris. They let me know today that they don't have one in stock. Cycle Dynamics (Canada) doesn't have one either. Anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks.

YOu can build what you want with these Mavic sets; will be little heavier, though.

Good luck on the DR. It's a killer. Hydrate.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm hoping for the cheap way out here. I only need a 27 or 28 once or twice a year. For DMD I used a 27 from my 'cross wheelset. I sold the 'cross bike the other day so now I'm in a bind for DR. A single 28 cog was only going to be $10 from Harris. If I can't find a single, the Mavic might be the way to go.

Not precisely what you want, but you might call them.

I was happy to see that "Loose Screws" was a reference to a website ...

Sounds like you have other solutions in mind, but look in the general discusion forum for my advice on how to canabalize an LX cassette. Older LX's have rivets instead of bolts, but drilling the rivet head out is pretty easy and acomplishes the same thing.
