Hypnotic Whatzit

I have no clue what it does.
Pretty, though.

Okay, it kind of looks like a chain sprocket for a multi-speed bicycle to me, the rear axle part, that turns the wheel, that move you down the road, which produces the sweat, that melts the fat, and changes one's attitude about French Fries.

That sound like a plausible explanation to you?

The high-performance SRAM PG-970 9-speed mountain bike cassette features PowerGlide II™ technology which provides precise (smooth-as-silk) shifting and excellent wear. It is a lightweight aluminum 5-arm spider with durable chrome plated steel cogs and weight reduction windows. It is optimized through tooth profile and shift ramp design for quick and positive index shifting and offers a stiff design that remains light weight and efficient. These babies deliver both maximum accuracy and durable construction from high-quality steel cogs and a long lasting heat treatment. Go on! They can take a nearly unlimited amount of abuse!

I'm just sayin'...

Or... you could jump on your bike and go for a joy ride in the country. Take the cassette with you and start up a conversation with someone. You might actually enjoy a most beautiful day.

I do believe that don smith is correct. It sure dose look like a chain sprocket to me.

Yup, rear-wheel sprocket was the first thing I thought of -- though all the ones I remember would have been five-speed or smaller (with two on the pedal sprocket to make a 10-speed). My current bike, which I haven't ridden in months, may have six-times-two.

Last month I got my bike out of the garage and tried to re-inflate the tires to see if I could still ride it. Blew one of the inner tubes and gave me ringing ears for a couple of hours. One of these days I need to see about that, if I want to resume riding without having to buy another bike.

Yeah, methinks you all is correct (Whut?).

A multi-speed bicycle sprocket.

The odd thing is this: I found this image by looking for another image using the search term
