    How did you get the wavy washer? Did it come w/ the crankset or did you pick one up at the hardware store? I want to take care of the migrating dust cap issue before I put my cranks on.

    Nice

    Sweet design and excellent machining. Do you know how thick the plate was to make the offset?

    I should have added that the pics I loaded are of a standard Middleburn ring, not HBC. At a guess, I'd say around 8mm plate.

    HBC Rings

    HBC 104/32t Weathered Brass and 102/34t Bright Gold ceramic finished.

    *********
    Stevob, having to use 8mm plate for the Middleburn would have a lot of waste material and be expensive compared to other spider-less rings. I'm sure the design can be modified to use thinner material though.

    Maybe, but not much. The thinner the plate, the further inboard the chainline will move. There's only so far you can go.

    Yeah, I would like to know the answer to this as well. Any idea what dimensions are needed for the spacer?

    I measured the spindle diameter and its 24mm. Then I tried to pull the dust cap out of the DS cup and couldn't get it out. I'm assuming I have the updated dust cap that wont come out with normal use. Here's hoping....

    I got my HBC ring and new X9 cranks installed, but the bike is too dirty for pics.

    Edit: This thread explains it well if you haven't already seen it. Seems like this issue was for an early run of cranks. I need to pick up an 8mm hex socket so I can torque the NDS arm properly and see if I'm having problems.

    I'm nearly 100% certain that ISAR doesn't offset his Middleburn rings. IIRC, in other threads he has stated that he includes a spacer with the Middleburn rings to replicate the offset, which has two benefits. It allows him to use thinner plate, keeping costs much lower, and it allows the ring to be flipped and run the other way, allowing a longer lifespan.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure he explained it in one of the other threads...

    This is correct...they use a spacer to account for the middleburn offset and are reversible

    Yes, it's a terrible photo, no offense taken; it's symmetrical as far as I can tell. According to Dan, the spacer is only needed for the ti rings, not the aluminum as pictured.

    Couple questions for you guys.

    Whats the idea behind going spiderless ? Is it just cosmetic ? Can any spidered crank be made spiderless ? I like XT's. Also, whats the two piece cog significance ? Stonger or is it suppossed to act as a spacer ? I love this guys work. I was going to pick up a Redline Monocog for cheap but now, saving a little longer to build up a singlespeed (most likely a SIR 9).
    My Alma 29er went missing about a month ago and i'm back and forth about what to do.

    Only cranks that have a removable spider, ie XTR 95X, C'dale, Sram XO, etc. Spiderless rings are lighter and stronger since theres no added interface of bolts fixing ring to spider. With the 2 pc cog you can have durable teeth of ti or stainless but the weight savings of Al for the carrier.
    Hate hearing about your loss of Alma.

Stonger or is it suppossed to act as a spacer ? I love this guys work. I was going to pick up a Redline Monocog for cheap but now, saving a little longer to build up a singlespeed (most likely a SIR 9).
    My Alma 29er went missing about a month ago and i'm back and forth about what to do.

    HBC Ti Cog and Spiderless Ring, with Ceramikoated Cranks

    Here's my new setup. First ride today and it was glorious!!
    Thanks Dan at HBC and RD at Ceramikoat!
    32T Ti spiderless ring on X9s Ceramikoated white to match other components and 20T Ti cog.
    Looks like I need to order a 18 and 19 tooth cog as the new bike is so light I ended up spinning more than I ever have. Will go with blue to match the other components.

    Awesome Kish Build

    White and blue accent looks great with the Ti. Post again with your overall impression of the Kish with Lefty. Do you have a finished weight?

    Weight is 22.5 lbs exactly before I added the bell and GPS.
    That's 13lb+ lighter than the 36er

    Middleburn 33t and 19t rear





    Lucky that I had a new, already broken to perfect length, 9spd chain sitting in my spares, as my gold KMC 9spd was one link too short for the new ratio.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    They are P321 hubshells surrounding Industry 9 internals so they seem to be pretty high quality and I like they they are made in the USA (and the state of NC for the internals). I also like that they don't have the proprietary spoke system that I9 uses for most of their hubs. No issues so far but only have about 100 miles on them (but doing 100 miles tomorrow!). The finish is really nice too.

    If you like loud hubs you'll love them (my Kings are silent in comparison which says a lot), and if you like to fly under the radar you may be annoyed at first. I use the noise as a way to tell myself to continue pedaling

    You can imagine how excited I was when I found out such a product existed. Thanks a million, Dan. The ring is a work of art!

    These look awesome. I have a 98 cannondale f500 mountain bike that I want to convert to SS. The guy at the store told me that I'd need a chain tensioner; is that true? I don't see any in these pics.

    Do you see any 98 Cannondale f500's in these pics

    You need to keep your chain tight somehow so if you don't have an EBB or sliders you'll need a tensioner.

    Oh man, bummer about the seat post though kid! Darn, gold anno on the water bottle cage bolts, or magic marker? Details, details.

    One last touch...gold bell, but I guess you aren't needing a bell there.
    Some days, it's not even worth chewing through the restraints!

    “Bummer about the seat”? That is a hilarious pun. Seriously though, are you talking about the seatpost? Did you draft your reply on Word so you wouldn’t misspell anything this time and accept the correction of seatpost to seat post?

    Calm down, Frank. I think BF was giving you a compliment and could only notice the seat & post a slight shade off. Thats why BF was asking about the color matching screws as well. Really, you got a nice bike that the majority of us would be proud to own. I don't think he/she was trying to insult you.

    31t. Perfect fit on the crank & brought the chain line in nice and tight.

    So what's the benefit to going Ti over Al for the chain ring? Just wondering if the price difference is worth it. I'm pretty much sold on a HBC ring for my up coming SS build, just trying to decide which metal.

    Don't have any HBC rings, but have run many Al chainrings and a few Boone Ti rings. The Ti rings last much longer than the Al counterparts. I normally go thru a few Al rings in a season, where the Ti ring has gone several seasons without showing much wear.

    Thanks for the insight. Sounds like the extra cost buying Ti is probably worth it in the long run.

    I must not ride enough or nearly as much as others then. I have been on the same alu ring for 2 years now and still haven't had to flip it over. I keep my bike pretty clean and the chain well lubed/cleaned. Perhaps this has helped it last so long. I typically ride 2-4 x wk at about 10-15 miles a pop. Like I said, I'm sure I don't ride/race as much as others out there but none the less, I have been quite happy with my aluminum ring.

    Anybody got a pic of a HBC 24 tooth stainless cog? I just bought one through the classifieds and was surprised to see it is solid...no holes or cutouts.
