I am looking at putting different gearing on my Surly 1x1, I am currently running a 32/16 however now that the snow is down I need to go to a 32/20 or so. I am running a Surly single speed rear hub which has a Shimano SF-mx30 on it.

Would I need to get the 3/32nd track cog or the 1/8 Track cog? Also would I need to buy another lock ring or will the Shimano one work with a Surly cog?

Also which tool would you use to remove the lock ring? I found a Freewheel remover for BMX wheels so I am assuming that it what I will require.

Ok, now that seems to make more sence. Is there a company who makes better freewheels with 20 tooth cogs? I see Shimmano's only go to 18 tooth.

I went through a few shimano and ACS freewheels last year. They would be fine for a while then would start the "clicking" which drove me nuts.
I bought a white industries freewheel and never had another issue. It's quite a bit more expensive, but worth it for me.

I work next door to White Industries...maybe I can sneak in while their bay door is open and grab a box full....I can't afford their stuff either.
