    Tomicog question

    Tried a search... nada.

    Anyone tried a tomicog with a King Universal Disc hub? I know, if it will stop the bike it should drive the bike... just wondering what others have found. Thoughts?

    I have both, but they have never been together. But there is no reason why the cog won't work on the King, they are both standard ISO mounts.

    I guess my question was more along the lines of is it a good idea. The King Universal has the adaptor plate that is only held in place by those 3 tiny bolts, I know you're not getting lateral stress so much, but still... good idea? Or just go buy a cheap disc hub?

    Sorry, mis-understood the question. If your chain line is good, I don't see a problem, the splines on the adapter are pretty sturdy. But I have had large objects jam into the cog (ie: a 2" twig - there's been a lot of dead-fall this winter), and they can put a pretty heavy axial load on the cog. I've bent a few teeth that way. But not on a King universal.

    The splines are doing all of the work. You should be fine. If it can handle stopping power it can handle the Tomicog. Just my $.02

    the interface of that stupid adapter king used to use (grrrrr..... ugly) is the same concept as the miche track cogs and carrier...







    ...but with even more surface area and much higher tolerances. the miche cogs actually slip right off the carrier, but not so with the king iso disc adapter. and the 3 bolts simply hold the rotor carrier on. actually, they simply tighten the carrier down. try to remove that silly thing and you will see just how little the three bolts have to do with holding it on and how incredibly robust the interface is!

    thankfully king finally deep 6'ed that thing. i was so happy im replacing all my old ck hubs with the new ones just to be rid of that unsightly monstrosity!

    Yup, it works. Been doing it for a while with the Boone. The Tomi should be no different.

    Here's a photo of my Boone and King Universal Disc combo:

    Works fine, just make sure to put some thread locker on the three adapter bolts.

    I am setting the same wheel up right now. It should be fine as mongod and riderx pointed out.

    The only issue I had is that the CK fun bolts are too big for my Surly chain tensioner and I need to run that while in fixed mode to keep the wheel from slipping on my 1x1. Think I may try to drill it out.
