I've got a 30t one and probably 36t one. If i was looking for one i'd look on ebay or aliexpress for a cheap chinese one. I'm using a cheapo chinese one on my cotic and had no problems with it after 1200 miles. It cost buttons especially from aliexpress as first time buyers get discount coupons.

I've seen the snail ones on eBay, they look ok for the price but I suspect the alloy will be like butter and not last very long?

Any other eBay/AliExpress makes I should look for?

The one i bought from ebay was a j&l (actually from taiwan and that's still ok after 1200 miles. The really cheap ones, might be made of cheese. I've bought a cheapie fron aliexpress for my new bike (if it ever arrives (tip don't order an orbea) so i can't say how that will wear, but it was so cheap it's practically disposable anyway.
