    Got my boone cog,but...

    ...which set of spacers to get for my cassette hub?
    The spacers i currently have cover most of the hard work that has gone into making it.So,can anyone recommend a small diameter set of spacers? Which do you guys use to best show off your boone cogs?
    Thanks.

    As Dirdir said, Boone makes spacers. See here (second from bottom). They come in 2mm, 3mm, 5mm, but he could probably make them in other sizes if you know exactly what you need. It looks like they're $2.00 each.

    I've got a set I used for a short while and no longer need if you are interested. They work really well for fine chainline adjustments.

    i never knew boone did spacers.Trouble is ive waited an age for the cog and dont really want to wait as long for the spacers.I want that cog on the bike asap. if you know what i mean.
    ssbn.742,those fibonacci spacers sound complicated.Did you use those with a boone cog? How did they look? I may be interested,but would you mail them to England?

    Just use spacers from an old cassette

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Use the spacers you have now while waiting for the Boone spacers. It may not look so hot now, but you'll be happy in the end.

    I really like the kit from Surly. The spacers aren't anything special, but the stainless steel lockring is a geat finishing touch. They are a nice clean way to finish off what you've got there.

    The Endless Fibonachi spacers will work fine.

    The Path Bike Shop has Boone spacer kits. They look very nice.

    They're not complicated at all and don't look too bad with the Boone

    Rennen threaded spacers are great and my choice for fine tune chainline adjustment when converting multispeed full cassett hubs to SS. I couldn't use the Rennen with my Industry Nine single speed hubs so Fibonacci was my solution in that case.

    I didn't realize the I9's were a dedicated SS hub. Please post some pics if possible.

    I9's come in geared or SS hub bodies.
