    That spacer used to have notches so that it would sit well on the cassette carrier on the hub. The notches have vanished into fine alum dust. This failure happened mid gap so i ended up landing on the handlebar with my chest. Now I have a great hickie like looking bruise :)

    This isn't the first Ultegra failure you've had. I thought you had learned your lesson *tsk* *tsk*

    Are you heading back this way for turkey day?

    i was expecting it to last a tad longer until I got a King Cog. Seems like webcyclery is out of 20T cogs for now...

    Sean, I am heading over for the Turkey week so we should get a nice group ride going.

    ya, i would be scared to ride on a cog like that. Mine cogs are plain and solid right down to the hub.

    fuck the king cog.


    Go to wallmart or something, the steel cogs they have there on those 40 pounds "mountain bikes" crush everything.

    is there anything to do? I noticed my echo hub was dug into a little, but the cogs are still in place, so iam fine.

    My understanding is thatthe base of the king cog is pretty wide and it can be used on the alum body.

    My king cog ate the fuck out of my steel drive shell...who cares they all eat into it. Right now I'm running a king on an alum. No intentions of ever getting it off.
