Re: Where's that 36 track cog?
The lock ring is reverse thread- so even though the sprocket would want to unscrew I think the lockring would still hold it on-
It's so a trakkie can both speed up and then slow down with reverse pressure-
I got a Schwinn Paramount track bike for my 21st- back in the day (wish I still had it!)
and riding the fixed gear was a bit tricky at first- but I was eventually even riding a fixed cog in winter training in the colorado mountains. Really spinning downhill!
