    $63 for a Al cog or $180 for a Ti?

    Makes supporting a Homey easy.

    Not helping who?
    Merely pointing out Homebrewed is a better deal, and for most a domestic choice.
    I bought my first HBC chainring from Dan in 2009.

    Does anyone know if Singlestar is still producing Ti cogs?

    It looks like there have not been updates to the site in a long time.

    Interesting ad copy...

    "A SingleStar can also turn a common or garden bicycle wheel into a top quality and also very light single-speed bicycle wheel in next-to-no time."

    Wow! a cheap, instant upgrade to my entire crappy wheel just by installing a new cog!

    "With its astounding weight of just 39 grams, the All-Star is also a highly interesting option for all those lightweight fetishists."

    My Chris King stainless steel cog only weighs 37g. Their Al cog weighs more? Give me a break.

    Beware of interwebs marketing BS...

    Yeah, interesting ad copy indeed. As I don't "sprechen sie deutsch" it's hard to say how much of this interwebs marketing BS you make reference to is just that and how much of it is a product of poor language translation.

    Regardless, if you're going to go to the trouble of dissing a totally different product than the one the OP was talking about then at least be evenhanded enough to note the SingleStar's (1.0 cm) spline interface is nearly twice that of the Chris King (5.2 mm) you reference.

    Just sayin'.

    Well put and the very thick spline interface is one of the primary reasons why I found the cogs interesting

    I do not (yet) own a Singlestar (yes, I'd go with one, living in Europe), but the guy who produces them has completed more insane ss races than anyone I know, including a non-stop singlespeed crossing of the Alps, using his product. He's also the one who managed to convince Tune to start producing a specific ss rear hub. Durability of the Singlestar does nog appear to be an issue. No cogs have been worn out as far as I know. Those who own one also all applaud the workmanship.
    None of the above is internet marketing, just first-hand knowledge.

    every thread about a product that is not HBC on these boards turns into a thread about HBC stuff. i wish it wasn't like that. i have nothing against HBC, but obviously the OP was looking for info about the singlestar and immediately got bombarded with free advertising for HBC. annoying. knock it off.

    Seriously though, HBC wait times are unreal.
