    C'mon, you know it's not worth it. Any CK cog will ride as smooth and last as long. Do you care that much to save 20g? I say, cut back on the nachos...And although pretty as a rising moon, once covered with dust, grim and grease, who can tell?

    So rationally, it is a poor purchase. But...it's a serious eye candy. And the box...OMG, what a box...

    I don't! I may even buy one myself. Please note that I gave credit where it was due. I just don't think it represents a great value.

    But what heck, don't we all buy things that we fancy?

    Thanks guys! Yea...it was bit pricey, but the couch is pretty comfy these days!

    As for how it performs...um...I have to admit that I haven't had a chance to get it on the trail yet. I installed it last weekend, but just haven't had a chance to ride with it yet. I've been in indoor classes in the evenings after work, but I'm hoping to hit some dirt after work on Friday. I'll let you know how it goes!

    Still not sure what to do with the tin just yet.

    Well every time I see that there's been a new reply to this post I click and again see that beauty of a cog and remind myself how much I would love one in a 21t but dammit just can't afford it oh well

    I'm just curious if their spacers are also Ti? And, how much adjustability do you have with them? I like being dead on with my cog placement and would be annoyed i can only get within 1-2mm for that cash.

    I have to be honest, I'm not exactly sure what material is used for the spacer kit. However, it is lighter than the Surly kit that I was previously using. There is quite a bit of adjustability with the kit (more so than the Surly kit), plus you can flip the cog itself to fine tune your line.

    Such low standards for your chainline! I'm usually worried if I'm off by anywhere from .5mm to 1mm! ...then again, maybe my standards are too high

    What types of tools do you use to measure if your chainline is off by .5mm?

    Digital callipers usually. I get mine to within 0.5mm using them and the correct technique.

    I want to climb them.

    I said i would be annoyed if i could only get within 1-2mm (with the Niner spacers). My chainline is perfect. Or, as perfect as my skewer measurement will give me as posted here http://forums.mtbr.com/8417635-post7.html . I even have some <.5mm spacers to get it lined up right on the teeth.

    No doubt. At least they include spacers and a lock ring. If you are the type to nerd out to the point of needing .01" spacers....well...you likely have a supply of them anyways.

    That skewer technique is brilliantly simple. Just checked my chain line and discovered the eyeball method was about 7mm off. eek!

    This kit is so clean, much nicer than the CK kit. I can't even question the asking price from Niner, it's worth the money.

    Despite being a versatile kit, it's not perfect. Namely, it misses small odd sized spacers such as 1mm and 3mm.
    Here the spacers that are enclosed:
    3 x 2 mm; 2 x 5mm; 2 x 10mm

    Pretty sure the GF has one on order for me in a 21t for upcoming birthday / christmas

    My King SS hub has nice spacers and lockring, so I'm not sure if I should use those or what sounds like the more tunable niner spacers ... what would you do?

    In theory how do think the durability will compare to a Surly?

    Uh, I think it's like comparing a military hummer to a porsche cayenne, right? One overbuilt and zero sex appeal vs. lighter and sexy. How does steel compare to TI long term? My Boone 20t Ti is still going strong after 4 years.

    ChrisGardner73 - What has been your experience with a PC-991 chain for SS? Are you using the Cross-Step version?

    Wow, you guys are nerds! I slapped a couple spacers on my hub, then the cog, then the spacer, stuck it in the frame. Eye balled it, adjusted the tensioner bolts to center the wheel and locked it down. Dead on as far as I am concerned and have had no problems what so ever. Seriously, though, I have calipers and would have measured it had I had any rubbing or alignment issues but honestly, it has worked flawlessly so far!

    That's definitely my usual routine.

    Unfortunately about 4" of mess came down overnight and it is sleet and nasty out there as I type ... just came in from shoveling it off the driveway

    Since ti weighs more than aluminum and spacers fill a low-stress role, it makes sense they'd be aluminum. I don't know whether they ARE aluminum, but aluminum makes a superior material choice for spacers compared to ti.

    Obviously the cog is a different story... ti or steel. I once watched an aluminum cog get destroyed in a day (CK).

    P.S. What does RDO stand for? Regular Day Off according to Urban Dic.

    RDO stands for Race Day Optimized I think.

    I built a spacer kit out of the spacers from taking apart old cassettes. Seems to work fine so far and I know other people running the same system on there bikes for over a season. I think the spacers are just plastic.

    I spoke with Niner. The spacers are aluminum, and so is the lockring.
