    Titanium Singlespeed Fixed ISO Cog

    West Coast Ridin'! Boone titanium, rarer than a flying unicorn. I'm conflicted, may just have to build a bike completely around this cog - argh, there goes my rule of two bikes in the quiver, max.

    I'm still running 8 speed.... I'll, uh, take it off your hands if you don't want that trash cluttering up your work space.....

    No, I'm piecing together the bike - it's all vapor right now. Blowing vapors more than anything ;-)

    judging by the photos he posted in the FGMTB photo thread his chain might be slack enough to be skipping or jumping teeth. I've had that kind of issue cause bent chainring teeth before

    Off Topic: Slack Chain Fixed Gear

    Chain should be tight, not slack when using on street and singletrack. This is due to non-track conditions in which a track set up you prefer to run a slightly slack setup for less friction. That wouldn't explain why the track bikes are so loud:

    sorry - just revisiting this. chain's def a little slack, but it never, ever dropped when it was single speed. my next plan of attack is ensuring the chain line is correct. unfortunately, i cannot get the damn left crank arm off the spindle so i'm kinda stuck - pun intended, i guess - for awhile.
