    anyone with tomicog experience

    i am building a surly 1x1, and though i will be riding primarily with a freewheel, i like the option of switching to fixed on occasion. i know the tomicog works by replacing the disc rotor with it but is it an easy switch that could be done on a regular basis depending on what mood i am in or would it be easier to have a separate wheel in the long run.

    It would be easier to have a second wheel , alot less wear and tear on the threads also .

    +1 Constantly switching would be a bad idea; disc screws have a locking compound on them and constant R&R could cause them to come loose. A better idea would be to run a canti-rear brake. That way you can flip/ flop any time you want and keep the Tomi-cog installed.

    Yes, been using two for about two years.

    Initially did the mullet brake option, disc front with a V rear so I could flip flop the wheel, and keep the rear brake as I learned fixed off road.


    Now I have an extra wheel that is TomiCog only and skip the rear brake completely. It is my gravel grinder and quick night trail ride for fitness, nothing long and steep.



    Next month I plan to build a dedicated wheel with the Surly fixed disc hub, so I can have a brake again.

    Of course having a second wheel would be easier, but swapping will not be an issue. Use proper tools and torque and don't cross thread your bolts and you'll be fine.

    I've got my Surly 1x1 set up with the mullet (disc front, v-brake rear) and the Tomicog. Like aka Brad said, this is the way to go.
