Whatever happened to the press in replacement cogs for X.01 Cassettes? Did SRAM 86 them all?

WTC and maybe Blackspire among others used to sell them.  Used to see 42 and 44t options.

I haven't seen them in ages. OneUp used to have 42T and then 47T cogs, but they no longer sell them either. I guess they take more of your money when they sell you a full cassette rather than just the cog.

Grab an e13 TRS+ 9-46 11 speed cassette, and when the 46 wears out you can replace it no problem....They also make a 9-42...

Are you speaking of 11 speed cassettes? If so, they are rare these days. I found two 44t wolftooth ones at a shop in the sale bin for 10$ each. They are in my parts bin now. I emailed wolf tooth, they don't sell them anymore. 

Why bother making the whole cassette out of steel if the aluminum cog is going to wear out so much faster. Either go all steel or all aluminum or make the aluminum ones replaceable. 🤷

^That's exactly what I'm talking about. The consumable 42T large cog on the 11spd SRAM cassettes.

This likely will be the option I'm going to go with.  Looking at the X.01 jockey wheels need to be replaced as well so I doubt I'll be getting parts for it this season

There is also the SunRace option if you can find one.

Sunrace doesn't solve his problem/want of replacing just the largest cog when it wears out. e13 does. Plus Sunrace is over 100g heavier. It is cheap tho....

^I'm running the SunRace 11spd 11-46 on my G16.  It runs good.  Even those are outta stock as I'd consider one of them and just put my HG freehub body back on. Its for my hardtail so weight is a blah concern.  Even on the G16 I have an Onyx Classic hub so LOL Bulletproof ass end. 

I might have to put the old 1x10 setup back on. 😂🙄
