    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.

    Too much

    The can should come filled with something like caviar from Russia or Something green and exotic from CO.

    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.

    +1 on Surly ... @ 21.99 they are great for finding what gear you are gonna stick with. Maybe if you are gonna be in say 32x21 90% of the time...nah ... to much! I splurged on an hbc 19t but my other 3 boys are Surly's. Name:  1110120819.jpg

    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.
