I want to buy an individual shimano cog 28T. Where can I find that ? Also, I read that there are different qualities of cogs and poor quality, large cogs can damage the hub spline. What do you recommend ?

Thanks !

I had already checked branford bike, but they seem to have only ultegra and dura ace parts, which is limited to 27 T with several cogs on a carrier. Unless I didn't look correctly, they don't seem to have MTB stuff.

I don't believe that you can buy a seperate 28t Shimano cog. I think they're all pinned to a carrier at that size- at least for 9 speed. You might be able to find an old 7 or 8 speed and jig it together, but I wouldn't count on it. Your LBS is the best bet to find something along these lines.

Dura-Ace can only accept a maximum of a 27 tooth cog. Try putting a 28 toother in, and you'll hit the jockey wheel! I assume that you know that you have to add links to the chain, too. Did you??

Lays out in spreadsheet form the compatibility between cassette makes and various cog spacing. THis should help in determining whether you can do what your proposing.
