    Hey Boone Ti cog owners

    I'm guessing the Boone Ti cogs are 3/32", right?

    How wide is the base? Just wondering if I'll do any damage to the soft cassette body of my DT240s SS hub. If it's just as wide as my steel King cog then there's nothing to worry about.

    Nothing to worry about. I sold my Boone cog long ago but its base was wider than the bases of my King cogs.

    How about longevity of the cog? I've seen Ti drivers for BMX wear out fast, yet I hear of people getting multiple seasons out of a single Boone cog. What is the scoop? ...and keep in mind, I'm a clyde

    Yo madcap, first of all I must say that you look much thinner in your picture.

    Second, as I said I sold my Boone ti cog a long time ago and didn't even own it very long, so I really shouldn't be answering this as you asked for advice about longevity from "Boone Ti cog owners" -- which I ain't no' mo'.

    But I'm replying for a couple reasons. First to give your thread a bump, and second because I did own that cog long enough to see a bit of wear developing (about a month).

    My experience with the ti cog was just long enough to tell me that I didn't want to spend $50 (that's what I paid for it back then) on something was was not going to last as long as my steel King cogs. And this is what I discovered. So I sold it for about what I paid for it before the teeth showed much mushrooming going on. But the evidence was adequate to convince me.

    Back in those days I think I could buy a King cog for around $20-25. Plus the steel cogs last longer. Sure, a little less bling but they work just as well and don't look so bad themselves, if I may say so.

    I guess it came down to Casio vs. Rolex to me. I chose Casio, and I don't have to dress up to wear it, if you get my drift.
