    Yes, you're absolutely way more hip, and must have a far greater net worth.
    Really - $129 for a single cog - just plain wow.
    Must chug gallons of Koolaid to even consider this over a $25 Surly.

    Yea, I am with you man. I switch between an alloy cogalicious and a surly. Both are wonderful. I have yet to see any evident wear after a couple hundred miles on the alloy cog.

    Would be more reasonable with a $50 in the can.

    If the cog were handmade I could see a price tag of $130, but not for one that is machine cut. Heck the CK stainless cogs are only $50 out the door and have yet to wear one out.

    Jokes aside, is this really more for bling or is the theory that a TI cog would last much longer than any other material? I have each of the Surly, Niner, and now CK and they're all good as new. Well, maybe slightly noticeable wear on the Niner but that's a given.

    Paging: Crazy 8 or HBC

    I gonna guess that there is some heavy wear and tear on the cutting tools and cost for higher labor on these? Oh and it says Niner on it ! Paging: Machinist ...

    ^^ Perhaps, Niner feels a void in the niche market created by Boone & HBC has grown to be worth pursuit.

    To those willing to play roulette with HBC, or eBay for a used Boone then $130 may seem a real steal.

    Until I start pooping gold nuggets, I'll be mashing away on a Surly.

    Check out the HBC thread. People have been waiting a year for a product. Considering they have my money and still no cog, it almost justifies getting the Niner ti model without the hassle of dealing with HBC.

    HBC does offer Ti cogs for $105. Thats a massive savings of $24. But, HBC does not add the spacers or the can... and for a lot of ppl, a cog .

    It's not a huge savings because HBC doesn't deliver. Nobody has has communication with them for months and he has ripped me off for my new chainring I ordered. If you had any sense you would drop HBC off the options list, unless you like to donate money to bad businesses.

    No doubt. HBC TI cog in 3 months, or Niner TI cog in three days. Seems like a no brainer.

    No, it's for people that live in states with real mountains. We have some very steep climbs out here on "trails" that weren't designed for bikes. Some of these are hard to hike up.

    Not Ti, but I can pick up 3 Chris King cogs through my LBS for only $3 more than this Niner cog. And IMO, it doesn't get much more blingy than Chris King products.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Just ordered this Nincer Ti cog as a birthday present to myself. I'll let you know what I think in a few days.

    BTW - in the meantime, I'm STILL waiting for my HBC chainring order...or at least a refund trough the dispute I submitted on paypal. What a crook.

    I think the packaging is at least $30 on the $129 price tag. It does look nice though (cog and packaging as well).

    Huge bummer, indeed. I've convinced myself that 32x20 is enough for trails I ride, but my legs disagree once in a while.

    Why would you require 21-23 cogs? You could size down enough on the chainring to get the gear inches you're after - I cant imagine 32T x 20T - it would render an almost unbearably spinny rig ... you could always go spiderless 30T if you want to go lower than 50 gear inches.

    Isn't that the essence of packaging? Did your cog and spacers arrive safely and look nice? You want it to make you a sandwich? As for sustainability, is it not made of metal? Turns out we can recycle metals now. I think if I had one it would become a storage tin for extra cogs or spacers, I am always losing them and digging through buckets of junk.

    I think its funny that people are quibbling over a tin can that likely costs less than $1. 8 oz Flat Silver Tins (Lid Included) : Shallow Metal Tins

    You can't imagine a trail with steep enough hills to warrant a 32x20? Either your trails are somewhat flat or your legs are like massive tree trunks. Or I'm just not trying hard enough.

    On a 29er 32x20/21 is pretty common in the Bay Area and SoCal - you must be an animal. Any real benefit to lowing the front ring too?

    Well that makes perfect sense! If I want a different gear, I should purchase one of the 4 cranks on the market that offer spiderless rings, and wait for millenia for those same rings to arrive instead of using the 1,000,000 commonly available 104bcd crank options which (like it or not) have a minimum common ring size of 32t, of which replacements are available in every bike shop in every podunk town in America, and just adjust the rear cog to suit my gearing needs.

    I bet that Surly sells a whole lot of bigger cogs because Chris King doesn't want to make them.


    Edit: What I'd really like to see is some aftermarket chainrings for these new 88bcd double cranksets in a few different sizes. That's unlikely to happen.

    +1 ... ^^^ and no respectable single speed should ever have less than 32t up front. C'mon man !

    ancient rascal: less than 32T like a 30T is respectable when you're running a 16T cog!

    My bad. Even more respectable than my usual 32x21 I might add.

    Is that basically the same as 32x18? Any benefit to bigger or smaller rings if the gearing is the same?

    Smaller = lighter and a quicker wear.
    Larger = conversely

    Why all the knock on niner for a racing specfic part, there is a market for it based on all the HBC compliants and comments even on this thread. I will stick withSurly but good on niner for making it available if that is your thing.
    XC, Road, XXC, Endurance, Mtn, All-Mtn, Cross, Gravel, just go have fun on 2 wheels!

    Because we/they perceive the price to be absurd for a mass produced unit.

    Maybe even for $ 90, but I agree 130 is quite steep.

    It takes a heftier chunk of Ti and more milling to manufacture the Singlespeeder cog. The base is 1cm...

    And that one costs more too, those prices are in euros. Then you have taxes and duties. I honestly don't think the niner cog is unfairly priced. I I saw a used boone cog selling for $160. You're telling me that a used cog with zero warranty is worth more than a new cog from a company that is in business? Not to mention that Tue inner cog looks better and does not come used.

    The Singlestar is probably better. (very well thought-out teeth profile)
