    Boone Ti cogs / chainrings - 3/32 or 1/8th chains?

    Do the boone cogs / chainrings run on 8/9 speed chains and SS / BMX or only one type?

    He generally makes them 3/32" which will run on both chains but you can request 1/8" thickness if that is what you want.

    Actually, don't contact Bruce, he doesn't make rings for bikes anymore, just fingers.
    Contact Brett Brown (brett@browntechnologies.com) who makes the chainrings etc. under the Boone banner.

    Brett can be a little slow at times but he has always gotten back to me.

    I've been running the wipperman 152 (whitestar) 1/8" chain on 3/32" rings for over 6000 miles with no problems at all....I don't know if its any stronger than a 3/32" chain but I broke two 3/32 in the past and the 1/8 is still holding up with no signs of stretch....

    Oh, running 32 x 18 boone cogs on my 29er....
    BELIEVE
    Imagine what you could achieve if you knew you would not fail.

    Theoretically 3/32" chains are stronger, but neither chain should fail under normal riding conditions if it is of a good quality, properly installed and maintained and replaced when appropriate.

    word. go 3/32 cog. you can use a 3/32 or 1/8 chain.

    with a 1/8 chain, you HAVE to use a 1/8 chain
