    Update: Disc fix cogs

    the website:

    http://tomicog.blogspot.com/

    the purpose:
    To supply disc fixy cogs to a small niche market
    in order to cover my race season 'budget.'

    Need to add the purchase option/shopping cart dilly
    to the website, then it'll be good to go. Target is to
    take orders and begin shipping the first production run
    first/second week of January. Final price is gonna
    be maybe $25, maybe $30 ea, $4.95 to ship up to four.

    Will spam again when it's all official.

    peace,
    Tomi

    Nice work man. Curious to see how many others latch on and give fixing a try.

    Early idiot here, been fixie off-road for 5+ years...

    My old cog is getting worn, so it's almost time for a new cog - good timing.

    I went cold turkey strait to off-road fixie in the middle of winter (winter solstice night ride with full moon and no lights) on ice & snow. Why? Because... well, I'm an idiot!

    Would it be possible to run a spacer between two bolt on cogs for a dingle setup?

    I wouldīnīt suggest so, cos the chain line could be problematical even with a single cog. And you better find some beefy bolts therefore.

    Iīm riding a single fixed cog like this for about one year without having any issues. It is bolt on a Goldtec singlespeed hub that luckily came out to be symetric.So,...great flipflop wheel.

    It's ALIVE!

    hey All,

    Added the shopping cart buttons to the site, so it's official now:

    tomicog.blogspot.com

    Cogs are $30ea, shipping is $4.95 for each qty of four, $9.95 to send beyond the USofA.

    Have a handful, 10ish to go out right away, some of these are accounted for already , so maybe 4 or 5 'in stock' at the moment. Will be shipping out the first official production batch beginning next week. Sizing the run so that I should have enough to go around based on the interest I've seen, making ~20ea size.

    thanks to the interest and inspiration everybody!

    Mine came in today! I like the "natural" (non) finish, as mentioned on the blog, i.e. all the marks left from Tom's hand work and not buffed. I hope everyone else gets the cool packaging I did too.

    I will install it on a wheel and then I can ride it on Thursday morning before I go to work in the afternoon. Have a fixie 29er that is my town bike, and a CrossCheck that is fixed/free, but this is my first off road fixed ride. I'm stoked!
