Um I havent heard anything about, but love the looks of the little man, but I will say, as beerman would probably also say, get a Tree Sprocet.. the best. You dont have to worry about good or bad brake cables.. a brake cable is a brake cable... I have an Odysey slick cable.. basic cable, does me good, will do you good.

i have a little man, i love it. you should try to find on of the ti profile sprockets. they look super light.

The titanium Profile sprockets are heavier than their aluminum counterparts. Why? Because titanium is more dense than aluminum.

Yea, if im not mistaken.. titanium is stronger than aluminum and lighter than steel.. thats its deal.
12-15-04, 11:46 AM
But titanium is 20x the price.

Not really. Maybe for small, machined parts like bolts and nuts, yes, but not for a machined sprocket. A ti sprocket doesn't cost all hat much more than an aluminum one.

thats just what there ad said, i was just seeing if they were really "lighter" than the others.

I'd love to get my hands on that Titanium Haro Mirra prototype. :-)
12-15-04, 11:12 PM
Why? So it could snap at the welds after flexing every time you do so much as manual?
do they have chromo sprokets?

IDK if it would snap that's why it's a prototype.

Considering that the current Haro Mirra is a completely blatant rip on the Terrible One Barcode, and Taj's titanium prototype snapped, I wouldn't have any higher expectations for the Mirra.
