Monster Cog

*post transfered from 2/20 ~9:30 pm

I finished putting on my new Soma cromoly track cog minutes ago with a little help from the guys at the LAB. At 19 teeth this thing is enormous!

Ratios I've tested so far (in order)

  1. 52x14
  2. 46x14
  3. 46x15
  4. 46x19
If you're riding brakeless, I think 46x17 or 49x17 may be the ticket, but for now, I think a dramatically lower gear ratio will make for a good change of pace. A much slower one. But if you're at a point in your riding where tricks are beginning to displace the need for speed; make life easier on yourself and lower your gear ratio.
