|ss/fixed question: track cog vs bmx cog||JS Haiku Shop|
Jul 3, 2002 12:44 PM
|I have the surly steamroller built-up as a single speed, by excel sports (from last fall). strongarm crank, shimano freewheel, suzue rear flip/flop hub. nothing is on the other side of the hub.
aside from the "gee whiz" factor, what's the difference between the surly track cog ($19.95) and the shimano bmx cog ($4.95) on the excelsports.com site (under single speed parts)? this URL might get you there:
will either work with what i've got?
will either work with the surly track cog lockring?

|It works great. I mounted it in on a normal 8/9 speed hub with a lot of spacers. I just ordered another cog from Excel for my next single speed project.|
|yeah, my problem is the track hub on the rear||JS Haiku Shop|

|instead of a "cassette hub". i may be totally screwing up the lingo here (sorry). spirito's right...the shimano piece is splined, whereas the hub is threaded.|

|I'm sure you know this but, If you use a BMX freewheel(it screws on the hub),you'll have a singlespeed. If you use a track cog, it will be fixed.|

|i'm guessing the shimano ss freewheel on the same page isn't splined. d'oh. shame, though...$15 difference.|
|Track pitch vs. road pitch||PODIUMBOUNDdotCA|

|Either should work... just be aware of the difference between track pitch and road pitch when buying. Track pitch uses a substantially thicker cog/chain over road pitch. So a road pitch chain will not work on it track pitch if thats what you have. However this said a track pitch chain will work on both road and track pitch.
Cheers (to the single speeds :P),
