It's a bad idea.

First position cogs have a builtin spacer so they have good spline engagement overhanging the end of the freehub, and serrations to prevent lock ring rotation. While you can...

More important Rule of thumb - make sure it's long enough in the big/big so you don't rip your derailleur apart and stuff it into your wheel.

It is funny that you mention obsession with gear ratios. I have an excel spreadsheet that lists both my bikes and my wife's bikes. I set it up with an arbitrary cadence of 75 as a reference point...

I have done similar as this without issue. I have used .5mm thick stainless spacers between 1st cog and the lockring. This resulted in a smooth surface for the lockring. Never had an issue.

FWIW, Assuming a 2x crank (?) an 11-XX cassette makes the 12 and 13 tooth cogs that more likely to be usable if cross-chaining is an issue with your setup when in the small crankring. A cassette...

I have a Campy 12-30 10 speed that I bought new 2 years ago. They're around.

50x12 gets you 27 mph @ 80 rpm.

10 and 11 teeth are for a smaller chainring. It gets used a lot more in a 1x set up...

Another experienced vote for yes, it's fine. Been using the same setup for about 15k miles and no issues.

You have come up against the problem many of us have, a current 9, 10 or 11-speed cassette with a 13T or even a 12T first position cog is difficult to impossible to find. My favorite cassettes in...

So long as it is torqued up against the sprocket and not the freehub you will be fine.

I was going to post earlier but gave it up. Now I see my point being mentioned by WizardofBoz. The chain looks to seat well on the ring teeth in the upper right corner of the photo. But it's the...

1 X 8. Narrow cogs. You have an 8-speed chain and that is a chainring for a basic 3/32" chain as was used for the old 5 and 6-speed freewheels. (Single speeds and fix gears use 1/8" or 3/32". The...

I've read that the 9-speed GS Shimano rear derailleurs, despite the spec of 27T max, will easily take a 28T cog, almost always take a 30T cog and will sometimes take a 32T cog. I hope this is correct...

Depends on the pin design not the number of cogs. Since most all common der chains have followed the peened pin design (because any shift gated system will stress the chain independent of the cog...

I've never seen an crank tool strip before the crank does.

It's not unusual for the internal threads on the crank to pull out.
