Use the Search (or click right here) and you'll get plenty of answers, but I use king spacers and Surly cogs on my King. Surly cogs because they are wider and won't dig into the alloy freehub.

There's also an adjustable freehub spacer but I forget who makes it.

I have used a king cog, but currently run a boone ti. Spacers: get the cheapies, or pay a lot of money for the king ones.

as others have stated......which equates to "good wide base cogs"......-> King, Endless, Surly....Boone is for poseurs with small wee wees

Surly cogs are only 5mm wide, they still dig into aluminum bodies, I would only use surly on steel hubbodies.

kings are only 6mm wide....sorry you had a bad experience with the surly, but i feel they are the best value for money out there and many would agree....

um.... nope. :nono:
Yes they do, no need to declare your opinion as the absolute truth. I have used my surly for 8months, and I had about 1mm of dig in already. This was a swiss edco racer hub.

I'm 240lbs and riding hardcore trials, that might be a reason as well for it to dig in.

chill dude. i hate to be captain obvious, but perhaps its necessary to point out that i didnt say surly cogs NEVER dig into aluminum freehubs, but rather simply disagreed with your declaration of "absolute truth" that surly cogs WILL ALWAYS dig into aluminum freehubs and thus should be used only on steel FH bodies.

too bad about your FH but myself and countless other big, hardcore duders riding hardcore trails have used surly cogs for countless months/years/thousands of miles on a wide variety of aluminum FH bodies without dig. :thumbsup:
