    Nice. Ti? And if so why the ceramic coating?
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    That ring is 7075 aluminum, designed and made by me. Limited run of 5 pcs currently.
    Machine time is a bit long as its machined on both sides.

    Nice ring Tehan, but it isnt made by me so make a own thread.

    Mattias, i can't wait for Ti option and maybe Sram spiderless. If you need a test subject, just let me know .

    Looks great, btw.

    English isn't Mattias first language so I don't think it's meant to be quite as harsh as it reads.

    Aluminum + ceramic coat makes more sense.

    7075 Al with the wear resistant ceramic finish will be very durable. I've been applying ceramic to rings, cassette's, cog's, crank-arms, even some chains for more than 5 years and have gotten excellent feedback on the performance applied to these high wear components. I've not found a component for a bike that is can't be applied. I've recently coated a couple custom steel frames by Edoz Bike I'm hoping for a report on long term for these, but if it performs well on steel it will perform and protect any material.

    Driver Bob's correct, Matt's comment wasn't harsh, but no one should be so sensitive the feel he was.

    I have made business with Tehan, hes a good guy.
    Not meant to be harsh here but Tehans stuff deserves a own thread.

    If I get more than 3 exact same inquiries for a spiderless chainring, I will make a batch and letting crazy8 coat and resell them as hes the distributor in US for my stuff, I take the smaller rest of world market

    Seems one of the most sought after are quality rings for spider-less Sram configuration. What rings are folks looking for? Let me or Matt know where the void is on quality rings.

    Throw me on that list please I don't have a crank yet, so I'm can go whichever way the ring dictates.

    I think Ti (aluminum options seem abundant) and spiderless (4 bolt has many options as well). Sram and Shimano seem the most common. I can work out gearing for a 32t-34t and they seem the most common on SS. It would help to stay ~$150 to compete with the other option that may never arrive. lol.

    How long ago did you buy the ring? Ti as well as all other metals price has increased sharply over the years. I purchased some 8'x4' 16ga steel sheet yesterday and with tax came to about $60 per.

    Gosh maybe 3 years ago? I bought out the remaining stock of Boone ribgs and cogs from The Path bike shop in Tustin, Ca.

    what about it? are you asking if these can be made? I think Mattias made one with this design a couple years back.

    Smart buy for sure. Surprised they still had them in stock. When did Boone stop producing?

    Titanium has hiked a lot in price in last 3 years, like the double in some sizes.
    In sweden titanium cost 1700 sek/kg which equals to around 200 euro per kilo.
    But thankfully theres a bunch of guys in US who sells it to better prices but shipping is not cheap for big sheets by air to sweden.

    Last year I saw that combo sell for over $1000 just crankset and ring. Knowing that I put mine up for sale and within a week I had $600. Prices on Boone stuff have been all over the map it seems.

    I have an XTR Shawnee 960SS crankset with the HBC ti chainring. I'd like to pair up with the Boone-Sweden chainring. @Crazy8, get at me when those arrive!
